The Virginia War Memorial Foundation is already conducting the painstaking work of tracking down photographs and stories for each of the names on the memorial wall.
They already have over 3,000 in their database.
We think the community can help.
The Virginia War Memorial and Museum Internship is to be awarded to an exceptional high school student with an interest in the military history of Virginia from World War II onward. Interns will choose between three tracks: education, technology, and historical research. Each track is designed to benefit both the intern and the VWMM.
By marrying the rigorous research methods of the Foundation to the tech-savvy and eagerness of local students, even more stories can be uncovered.
They must be shared.
