“Well done!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013 via mobile

This memorial was very well thought out and instills a sense of pride when you walk through and read the names listed on the walls. I highly recommend stopping in and seeing this sight.

“Great Memorial”
Reviewed 24 August 2013

West Virginia did it right when they decided to honor their veterans!. The memorial is impressive from every angle and pays tribute to all the West Virginians who have served and especially to those who died. The memorial is located on the State Capitol grounds near the WV Cultural Center.

“Well Done State Memorial”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

I grew up just outside DC and now live in Kentucky. I would expect to see the type of memorial that West Virginia has as something that might be in D.C. (just on a little grander scale). I did not expect to see something like it in West Virginia. Kentucky has some nice memorials too, but nothing like this that I've seen. Impressive job. A nice honor to those West Virginians who were lost in the 4 wars (WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam)

“Worth Stopping To See Capitol Building and Memorial”
Reviewed 17 July 2013

We were passing through Charleston and decided to stop to show our kids the capitol building. Pleasantly surprised to see the West Virginia Veterans Memorial. What an outstanding tribute to those who fought for our freedom! The statues representing the different wars had great detail and the names of those who died on the memorial reminds us of how many have died for our country, thus making the ultimate sacrifice.
