This is a very nice memorial. Everyone will have some surnames they recognize on the list of the fallen. The acoustics inside the memorial are remarkable. At night the memorial is lit up in different colors. Very nice!

My mother and I passed the monument while visiting the Capital Sunday . Very emotional to see statues from different wars.

This memorial is located on the capital grounds with many other must see memorials and statues. A person should take a full day to enjoy the grounds, the museums, the cultural center, a walk along the river and a visit to the state capital. Bring a lunch on a nice day and enjoy the area.

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.
