The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial
The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial opened in Washington, D.C. on October 6, 2014, and DAV has played an important role in the life of the memorial, from its inception. Since the memorial’s opening in 2014, the Foundation has focused on outreach, education, public engagement,
upkeep, and maintenance. At the convention, Bobby Barrera stated that 8,000 volunteers have dedicated 1,400 hours to maintaining the memorial through cleaning and trash removal.
The memorial not only pays tribute to disabled veterans, but also focuses on teaching all of those who visit the memorial about the sacrifice that veterans make in service to their country. This mission also extends to those who visit the memorial virtually. Touring the memorial virtually allows those who would not otherwise be able to visit the memorial to experience and engage with its mission.
