Memorialization of fallen Virginians at the Virginia War Memorial.  Codifies the criteria for inclusion of Virginians who died while serving in the armed forces on the Shrine of Memory at the Virginia War Memorial, as was required by legislation adopted in 2009. The bill also directs the Virginia War Memorial Foundation Board of Trustees to develop plans and criteria for an additional memorial to all Virginians who died while serving in the armed forces, even if they do not meet the criteria for inclusion on the Shrine of Memory.
