Veterans, family members and students who have not been able to visit the American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, D.C., can now do so online.
A breathtaking virtual tour was launched online on the anniversary of the memorial’s dedication. It features a narrated “walking” video function, 360-degree panoramas and photography.
“It was important for us to make the memorial accessible to veterans who may not otherwise be able to visit,” said Dennis Joyner, president of the memorial’s foundation. “The fact that we will be able to introduce students to this place of honor is also important. This is an opportunity for teachers to introduce them to the true cost of war and endear them to those who’ve served and sacrificed.”
According to Joyner, teachers are encouraged to incorporate a virtual tour of the memorial in their Veterans Day curriculum.
