VADOC Honors Those Who Served for Memorial Day

June 03, 2024

The Virginia Department of Corrections (VADOC) took time this Memorial Day to honor those who paid the ultimate price serving in the United States military. Facilities across the Commonwealth held different events to honor those of its corrections team veterans who served. The events also gave facilities the opportunity to recognize inmates who served.  

“I am proud of our facilities for taking the time to pay their respects and honor those who have served this country on this Memorial Day, particularly the service members who died serving our great nation,” said VADOC Director Chad Dotson. “We thank the men and women on our corrections team and inmates who have served and honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for the freedoms of the United States of America.”

Below is a breakdown of Memorial Day events at VADOC facilities in each region:
