Virginia Heroes

Welcome to the Virginia War Memorial’s Virginia Heroes database. This online resource is a comprehensive list of Veterans both in Virginia and across the country who wish to be represented.

This list includes all of Virginia’s Heroes who made the supreme sacrifice from WWII, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf and whose names are etched in stone and glass on the walls of the Shrine of Memory. Their records are indicated by a gold star.

Staffers and volunteers at the War Memorial continue to research the names and personal histories of Virginia’s fallen. As we learn more about these brave men and women, we will continue to add information to this database so that their stories may never be forgotten.

To submit your personal service record information, or that of any other Virginia veteran, living or deceased, please use the Veteran Updates form and submit to the Memorial for inclusion.
