Disabled Veterans Memorial Opens

Sunday, President Barack Obama, military officials, veterans, and guests like actor and disabled military advocate Gary Sinise, were among the speakers at the dedication of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial.

“Each of you endured a moment that shaped the arc of your lives and that speaks to our debt as a nation,” Obama told a crowd of thousands.

The first memorial of its kind in the US, the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial is located on more than two acres of land 1,000 feet from the US Capitol. Art Wilson, the former national adjutant for the Disabled American Veterans, said the memorial “will be a quiet space for strength and vulnerability.”
