Anderson elected Chairman of Virginia War Memorial Board

Delegate Richard L. “Rich” Anderson of Woodbridge has been elected Chairman of the Board of the Virginia War Memorial.

Delegate Anderson has represented Virginia’s 51st District (Prince William County) in the House of Delegates since 2010. A native of Roanoke, Va. and a graduate of Virginia Tech and Webster University, he served 30 years on active duty in the US Air Force and retired with the rank of Colonel in 2009.

Among his committee assignments in the Virginia General Assembly, Delegate Anderson serves as Co-Chair of the Joint House-Senate Military and Veterans Caucus, the Legislative clearinghouse for bills affecting 800,000 Virginia veterans. He also sits as a member of the Virginia Board of Veterans Services and as a member of the Virginia Military Advisory Council (VMAC).

 

The Virginia War Memorial in Richmond is the Commonwealth’s tribute to its fallen heroes, veterans, and active military. Dedicated in 1956, the Memorial includes the names of the nearly 12,000 Virginia heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice during World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and the ongoing Global War on Terrorism. Its basic mission is to Honor Veterans, Preserve History, Educate Youth, and Inspire Patriotism in All.

The Virginia War Memorial is a division of the Virginia Department of Veterans Services and serves as an integral part of its mission in support of all Virginians who served in our armed forces.
