This Inspiring Memorial Is Honoring Disabled Veterans In An Amazing Way

The perpetual flame at the new American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial burns at the center of a star-shaped fountain in Washington, D.C. The memorial is to honor all veterans who have been disabled by America’s conflicts. Each point of the star represents a branch of the military. The 2.4-acre memorial, which was funded by private donations, includes glass panels with photos and quotes by disabled veterans and a reflecting pool.

The memorial honoring disabled veterans of the past and present has a clear view of the capitol building to help show that this memorial serves as a tribute to these brave men and women who have sacrificed everything to serve our country.

The 2.4-acre triangular site — across from the U.S. Botanic Garden and roughly 1,000 feet from the Capitol — uses granite and glass to communicate the strength and vulnerability of service members. The project which was done on pure donations came in at $85 million. Give it a look and let us know what you think!
