Memorializing the sacrifice of disabled veterans

Earlier this month, a new national memorial was dedicated in Washington D.C. Located directly east of the Capitol Building, this memorial was erected in an effort to honor American veterans who sustained lifelong disabilities as a result of their service to the nation. Many veterans have suffered lifelong physical disabilities, while others have suffered lifelong mental disabilities. All of these veterans are honored in the spirit of the new memorial.

The memorial is primarily constructed out of granite and glass. Fittingly, the National Park Service describes the juxtaposition of these two materials as a manifestation of both strength and vulnerability. There is no question that the American men and women who have been disabled as a result of their brave service to the nation have proven their strength. And yet, it is also important to honor their vulnerabilities as well.

We frequently write about the federal benefits for disabled veterans that are available in the wake of sustaining a disability related to military service. These benefits are made available because the men and women who stand up for our nation’s honor are ultimately human. No amount of bravery or strength can spare humans from injury, illness and ultimately death.

It is vitally important that those who have sacrificed their lives in service are honored by our nation. It is equally important that those whose lives have been forever changed by service-related disability are honored as well. The dedication of this new memorial has almost certainly aided this most precious and deserving pursuit.
