Veterans Memorial Draws Attention
The fact that there a NO lights has drawn the spotlight. The West Virginia Veterans Memorial at the Capitol Complex has been without floodlights and walkway lights for some time because of an electrical problem. Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown told the Charleston Daily Mail the electrical panel may have been impacted by leaking rainwater, but it's in a confined space and it's hard to tell for sure. A contractor is coming in to look at the problem. One Air Force veteran says a darkened memorial is disrespectful to veterans.
