-------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello all! I'm Kristen Mallory! My mom, Susan, dad, Mike, and I are the founders of Mallory's Movement Against Drunk Driving which is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit corporation. On June 9, 2013, my life was changed forever by a drunk driver. As a survivor of this horrific event, I've made it my life’s mission to share my story in order to spread awareness about the dangers of drinking and driving. It is important to me that people understand the long-term implications of something that is 100% preventable. With this mission in mind, I speak at high schools, colleges, prisons, police department training academies, military bases, conferences and pageants by partnering with Chesterfield County Schools, Chesterfield County Police, the Virginia State Police, the Victim Services Unit of the Virginia Department of Corrections, Youth of Virginia Speak Out About Traffic Safety (YOVASO), the US Navy, US Air Force, and MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving). I'm passionate about doing my part in preventing others from being impacted the same way I have, but I also hope to inspire others who have been affected by similar circumstances to see that they too can survive and show they are not alone. I'm open to any opportunities to share my story because it is my goal to let my message reach as many people, in as many communities, as possibl

WELCOME TO THE Virginia War Memorial

Through the stories of those who served, the nation’s leading state War Memorial honors Virginia’s fallen and preserves the past. In the process of helping veterans find their voice and collecting and telling their stories, the Memorial also educates and inspires for the future.

Take a moving, reflective walk through the heart of the Memorial: the Shrine of Memory.

During World War II, nearly 10,000 Virginians made the ultimate sacrifice while serving in the U.S. Armed Forces.

Five years later in 1950, the Virginia General Assembly authorized the construction of a memorial to honor and remember them.

By the time the Memorial was dedicated on February 29, 1956, remembering those Virginians killed during the Korean War had been added to the Memorial’s design.

To design the Shrine of Memory, Architects Samuel J. Collins of Staunton and his nephew, Richard E. Collins, combined mid-century modernity with the timeless style of a Greek temple. The open pavilion fully embraces its dramatic site on more than four acres overlooking the James River and downtown Richmond – a view that’s seen through huge sheets of glass engraved with the names of the fallen.

With their names forever set against the backdrop of their capital city, they’re watched over by sculptor Leo F. Friedlander’s “Memory,” a 22-foot-tall statue of a woman in grief. An eternal flame flickers at her feet.

The Virginia War Memorial, 621 S. Belvidere St. Richmond, VA 23220
