Flames of Memory and Christmas in Wartime Presentation


Due to rain in the forecast, Flames of Memory and Christmas in Wartime will not be held on Friday, December 14.  Please join us Saturday, December 15 and Sunday, December 16 from 6-9 p.m. each night.  Check back for updates.

As twilight deepens and obscures the Blue Ridge, the Memorial will honor the 4,413 men killed on D-Day. Arranged throughout Elmon T. Gray Plaza, thousands of luminaries will shine in recognition of Overlord’s fallen and in tribute to the ultimate sacrifice each made to relight the lamp of freedom.

The luminary display is sponsored by the Virginia Moose Association and the Virginia Elks Association.
