Virginia War Memorial: Honoring those who serve

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – It is Veteran's Day -- a holiday dedicated to those Americans who have served our country throughout history.

No amount of rain could keep people from turning out to pay tribute at the Virginia War Memorial.


Today is a special day for many -- especially in the wake of last week's shooting at Fort Hood in Texas.


Governor Tim Kaine released a statement earlier today citing Fort Hood as a reminder of how important America's veterans are -- not just today, but every day.
