I wouldn't make this a must see but if you have a little extra time it is worth taking the time to see.

The area is lovely and the Memorial by the river is beautiful and moving. Names are engraved and the pool and flame with the grieving mother statue is profound. Th e kids can just run around the grounds too.

There is a nice auditorium where you can choose to watch short videos of each conflict. They are well done with veteran interviews.

The war memorial is small, but very well laid out. It has the names of all the Virginians that have fought in all the wars over time. It should take about 15-20 minutes to go through it unless one wants to read the names inscribed.

Visit this wonderful memorial. The displays, the authentic memorabilia, the famous (and not so famous quotes) by past military leaders is a fantastic history lesson and a way to both remember and honor our veterans. Staff was very helpful.
