Virginia War Memorial Board

The Virginia War Memorial Board is responsible for monitoring the welfare of Virginia’s War Memorial and supporting the War Memorial staff. The Virginia War Memorial in Richmond serves an integral role in supporting the mission of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services. The Memorial honors our fallen heroes by passing their extraordinary stories of sacrifice forward to future generations through many outreach and on-site educational programs. With regular patriotic events, educational seminars for students and teachers, historical museum exhibits, research library, first-person historical documentary videos, customized tours for schools and other groups, and near virtual reality film, Into Battle, the Virginia War Memorial is heralded by many as the preeminent state memorial to honor its veterans in the United States.
