The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial: A Solemn Tribute

April 25, 2014



The Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation will travel to Washington, D.C., to host the dedication ceremony for the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in October 2014. Under the leadership of Florida philanthropist and LIFE Foundation Board Chair Lois Pope, the ceremony will serve to officially unveil the structure, which was designed by Michael Vergason Landscape Architects.

At the center of the memorial lies is a fountain in the shape of a star, complete with a ceremonial flame in the middle and water flowing into a large reflecting pool. The memorial, which includes elements of both glass and granite, represents the close relationship between loss, renewal, strength, and vulnerability. As a tribute to the sacrifice and service of veterans with disabilities, the memorial also features a number of photographs, bronze sculptures, and laminated glass panels with embedded text.

Above all, the memorial will provide veterans with disabilities and their families with the opportunity to remember those who have served their country. To learn more about the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, visit the website http://www.avdlm.org.
