Seems to me the last person who posted has an ax to grind? And he obviously visits the site just to lower the ratings? For those not in the know but who truly care about veterans, this foundation is building a memorial in Washington, DC to honor the sacrifice of disabled veterans. From what I've read, they are expecting to be ready and open to the public in the fall of 2014. The next time you see garbage from a "reviewer" (you can tell by the dumb photo and silly comments), take it with a big grain of salt. -- Written by the mother of a disabled veteran

Just read that this long-overdue Memorial is under construction. It will be a welcome and beloved addition to Washington DC. It's time to honor those who have been disabled defending our country. As for another comment on this page ... this is NOT the group profiled on Anderson Cooper. The names are very similar but they are different groups entirely. This one is on the up-and-up.

Glad to hear that construction has started on the Memorial. Disabled veterans will now have a fitting tribute to the sacrificies they've made for our country.

Do not confuse this Foundation with the Disabled Veterans National Foundation, which was the subject of Anderson Cooper's story on CNN. They are not related in any way. THIS Foundation's sole focus is to raise money to build The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial in Washington, DC, to honor and pay tribute to some of America’s most courageous heroes, and to celebrate those men and women who may be broken in body—but never in spirit. It is expected to be completed and dedicated in late 2014. Updates can be found on the Memorial website, www.avdlm.org.

Before you even consider donating to this operation, check out Anderson Cooper 360. They did an in depth investigation that will convince you that there are far better places to donate your money if you really want to give disabled veterans the help they need. http://ac360.blogs.cnn.com/2012/05/08/charitys-money-not-going-to-helping-vets/?on.cnn=1&hpt=ac_bn2

Beware before thinking of donating!!! Go to www.loispope.com and find out how they have spent millions on self-promotion and parties. Report to the IRS and your congressman. Spread the word on Twitter and Facebook

As a duped donor please visit wwwwheresthemoneyloiscom and find out why I think this tax shelter for a rich golddigger will never be built.
