American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, Washington, D.C.
President Obama was among the people who gathered in October 2014 for the opening of the first-ever memorial in honor of disabled veterans, those who suffer from physical injuries or emotional ones like PTSD. The monument, set on a 2.4-acre site near the Capitol, features a reflecting pool with a star-shaped fountain, glass and granite walls, and a grove of trees. It’s an unusual and much-needed memorial, as it honors living heroes.
