American Veterans Disabled for Life Silver Dollar
Members of the Armed Forces of the United States have served our nation faithfully around the world. Millions of them became permanently disabled while defending our freedom, and we owe them a special debt of gratitude.
One way that gratitude is expressed is through the American Veterans Disabled for Life Commemorative Coin Act of 2008. This Act allows the United States Mint to mint and issue commemorative silver dollar coins to honor these heroes.
Congress has allowed a surcharge from the sale of these coins to be paid to the Disabled Veterans’ LIFE Memorial Foundation. The foundation plans to build an American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, DC.
