The Virginia War Memorial is considered by many across the nation as the most impressive and stirring of state memorials in the United States. Originally conceived as a memorial to Virginians who had lost their lives in World War II, the construction of the memorial was modified as the nation found itself embroiled in the Korean War. The memorial is now preparing for massive expansion to create an additional memorial for Virginias who have made the ultimate sacrifice during the war on terrorism.
Hope to see you there! Don’t forget to bring water and a bowl for your four -legged buddy. For more information, check out Music at the Memorial.
