On the last Monday of the month of May each year, we acknowledge the sacrifices made by those who fought and died in conflicts involving the United States. This year we also commemorate the end of World War I (Nov. 11, 1918) – a war that saw 9 million soldiers and 7 million civilians perish. Over 116,000 Americans were killed in the war - 3,700 from Virginia. Here in Roanoke we have recognized those killed in the War through memorials including Memorial Bridge, the Roanoke Valley War Memorial located downtown, and Argonne Circle in the Old Southwest neighborhood.
