UNITE A CITY.    

A New Vision for RVA.

 

Monumental Honor seeks to memorialize the legacy of Richmond’s Medal of Honor Recipients.

 

Through community building and public service, we can bring honor to Richmond’s local heroes. Our ultimate goal is to erect a monument in downtown Richmond that will mark the selfless acts of local heroes from various ethnicities, ranks, military services, and wars. Together, we can inspire and unite the city by sharing a part of RVA’s history that all can be proud of.

 

The names and actions of these local heroes will be etched into the heart of RVA for generations to come.

 

Honor & Unite!

HONOR A LEGACY.
