The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial was dedicated in late 2014

We have to remember that when you come home from war, your battle is just beginning and it’s going to last the rest of your life, and someone has to be there to take care of you.
—Art Wilson, co-founder of the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial

Soldiers are injured and life goes on, except, life is never the same.  Whether you can see someone’s disability or not, the pain never leaves.
—Diane Musselmann, spouse of the late Kenneth Musselmann

It’s not what you’ve lost that counts, it’s what you do with what’s left… In a way, I’m special, I thought.  I’m a member of a unique group.  It could be the end of the world for me, or it could be the beginning of a whole new life.

—WWII veteran’s words inscribed in the wall at the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial
