Disabled Veterans' LIFE Memorial Foundation (DVLMF)

The value of our veterans who have sacrificed so much for the country risking their lives at every stage cannot be emphasized enough. Defending America with total commitment, these veterans often return home grievously injured either mentally or physically. It is the duty of every single citizen of America to honor and assist veterans who return home with life debilitating disabilities.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial is an organization formed especially to pay tribute to and honor courageous, disabled veterans and to celebrate their undying spirit. This foundation was formed essentially to construct the memorial by raising funds. This foundation was established by late Jesse Brown, the former Veteran Affairs secretary, Mr. Arthur H. Wilson, the President of the foundation and Lois B. Pope a philanthropist and chairman of the foundation in 1998. The sole purpose of this nonprofit organization is to collect funds towards constructing the memorial.

The monument will grace America’s capital and will be one of the significant landmarks that will attract millions of visitors. It will be a fitting tribute to thousands and thousands of brave warriors who stand watch over the country.

The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial will be constructed on a site measuring two acres between Second Street SW and C Street SW at the Washington Avenue, just across the United States Botanic Garden and Independence Avenue and adjacent to the National Mall within view of the United States Capitol.

Legislation to construct this memorial was passed in Washington by the Congress and the legislation was signed into law in 2000 by President Clinton. The memorial is sponsored by Representatives John Murtha, PA and Sam Jonson, TX, Max Cleland, GA the former Senator and Senator John McCain, AZ. 

This memorial will honor veterans who have served for their country and in the process were permanently disabled.
