A war memorial for the many Virginian Souls perished during US wars. The wall of names is both breathtaking and unnerving. The friendly and attentive staff bring this memorial to life.

A monument to World War I, this memorial was built in 1932 and stands 240 ft tall. The bells still are functional. Check on line to see when they ring. It's impressive.

Good video explaining why Veterans serve to protect our freedoms. Free to the public. Volunteers are very friendly and eager to share information. One is a veteran that had to crawl out onto the tail wing of a WWII bomber to bail out.
