The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial serves as a national tribute to the more than 3,000,000 disabled American veterans and the hundreds of thousands who have died. The Memorial is built on a 2.4-acre triangular site across from the United States Botanic Garden and within sight of the United States Capitol, so members of Congress can be continually reminded of the human cost of war and the need to support America’s veterans.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial conveys both strength and vulnerability, loss and renewal with a star-shaped reflecting pool serving as the focal point. Three walls of laminated glass with text and images and four bronze sculptures tell the story of the disabled veteran's call to service, trauma, challenge of healing, and discovery of purpose.
