Hill of Heroes: 2022


From Friday, June 24 through Friday, July 8, the Virginia War Memorial grounds will feature the annual “Hill of Heroes” flag installation.

12,000 flags will be placed  on the hillside along the Shrine of Memory to honor the nearly 12,000 Virginians killed in service to the country from World War II through the present day.

This year, we proudly present the display of flags as a “gift” to the city of Richmond and the Commonwealth of Virginia. We would like to offer this moving display as a celebration of patriotism and a reminder of all those Virginians who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.

We are calling for volunteers on Friday, June 24 at 8:00 a.m. for helping to install the flags. Appropriate safety precautions will be in place, and all needed supplies, water bottles, and flags will be provided by the Virginia War Memorial Foundation.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact mmwachur@vawarmemorial.org or 804.786.2037.
