A Time to Honor America's Paralyzed Veterans and Their Families...
The week of April 11-17, 2010, marks the founding of Paralyzed Veterans of America 64 years ago.
All Americans are being encouraged to take time out of their busy schedules to honor and help empower America's paralyzed veterans.
With events and activities across the country and the theme Empowering Lives, Paralyzed Veterans of America Awareness Week highlights the unique challenges facing veterans with spinal cord injury/dysfunction.
It spotlights the work of Paralyzed Veterans to empower seriously wounded heroes and their families with everything they need to thrive.
This special week will also see the launch of Mission: ABLE, a new campaign that will enlist all Americans, companies, citizens and communities, to help our paralyzed heroes fully live the lives they deserve and to receive what they need most: care, benefits and jobs. Please visit www.mission-able.com for more details.
"Please take a minute during Awareness Week to think about the enormous challenges paralyzed veterans and their families face every day and then do something good to help empower their lives," said Gene A. Crayton, national president of Paralyzed Veterans.
"From a community saying thanks to a paralyzed veteran who has just returned home from Iraq to an employer deciding to hire more veterans with disabilities, you can do something special to celebrate the 64th birthday of Paralyzed Veterans of America."
