Additional commentary.
1. Location of the Veterans' Memorial
Out of a quirk of Virginia's political geography, while the memorial is for veterans from Rockbridge County, the memorial is not in that county. Lexington, while the county seat, is a distinct entity as are all municipalities organized as cities in Virginia.
