There are almost 22 million living veterans throughout the United States, from our Greatest Generation to our recent heroes coming home from Afghanistan and Iraq.
And yet, there is no single monument or museum dedicated to the Veteran’s experience. There are institutions that focus on specific conflicts or branches of service, but there hasn’t been a place for us all to join together to celebrate and honor the sacrifice of all of our veterans, past and present…until now.
The National Veterans Memorial and Museum is currently under construction in Columbus, Ohio, with an anticipated grand opening in Spring/Summer 2018.
