This is a beautifully designed memorial dedicated to West Virginia's fallen heros. It has a statue representing the different wars of modern times (World War I,World War II,Korean War and the Vietnam War) and on the inside are walls with the many names of the victims of these wars. It's a somber reminder of their sacrifice tastefully designed. It's located next to the capitol building so a quick visit to honor these heros can be easily combined with a visit to the capitol building or the state museum which is also located here.

The setting by the capitol is very nice. It is a well executed memorial and easily accessible for pretty much anyone.

If you want to respect those who have given their lives for this nation, visit the memorial which represents the four armed services of our nation and those who have died from WWI forward. The four heroic bronze sculptures, surrounded by a reflecting pool is the appropriate setting for the names listed on polished black granite in the interior of the monument.

Too see all the names of those who have given their lives for their country from the small state of West Virginia is sobering. A fitting tribute built in their honor.

This is a great memorial to the military from West Virginian in past wars. The state has done a superb job with recent renovation after local vets and friends began needed repair and clean up. It is in anice, quiet spot on the Capitol grounds, near the Cultural Center and State Museum. This is well worth a stop for reflection and honoring our veterans.

Absolutely breath-taking! Beautiful and sad at the same time. All of the names of the fallen solders will help you to realize just how many West Virginians gave their lives for their Great Country!
