The Disabled Veterans' Life Memorial Foundation was created by philanthropists and from various donations. It is estimated that $86 million in private funds is needed to design, build and permanently maintain the nation’s first memorial dedicated to living and deceased disabled veterans. About the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial, “It was the price of their blood and of your Independency; it is therefore more than a common debt, it is a debt of honor,” President George Washington.

Transcending conflicts, service branches and generations, the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will express America's lasting gratitude to the men and women whose lives were forever changed in service to our country. For the first time in our nation’s history, we will build a monument to honor and pay tribute to some of America’s most courageous heroes. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will celebrate those men and women who may be broken in body—but never in spirit.

As these veterans face a life for which no one can prepare, so must their families and friends. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will also honor veterans’ loved ones and caregivers—individuals whose heroic devotion is a source of strength for those striving to heal.
