Geocache Description:

This is one of the most beautiful views of the Virginia Tech campus. At the cache you will be standing directly over the place where the Hokies got hitched.

While you are here make sure you check out the surrounding structures. Originally conceived as a World War II memorial, the monument now encompasses much more. Inscribed on its eight pylons are the names of the 419 alumni and students who died in combat during wars and conflicts of the 20th century. The pylons themselves represent the character traits of Brotherhood, Honor, Leadership, Sacrifice, Service, Loyalty, Duty, and Ut Prosim (the university's motto). A cenotaph on the open court of the pylons bears the names of the university's seven Medal of Honor winners. And the War Memorial Chapel, a non-denominational place of worship, pays tribute to the spiritual dimension of education and personal growth.

As you approach the coordinates above (from the street) you will walk up a set of three small steps. There are words carved into the top step. To log this cache as a find you must e-mail those words to us. Guidelines for logging a find are as follows:
