Exhibit showcases wounded warriors abilities

TRIANGLE, Va. – A new exhibit at the National Museum of Marine Corps honors wounded warriors by showcasing their achievements — not focusing on their disabilities.

The exhibit, called “Focus on Ability: Celebrating Our Wounded, Ill and Injured Marines’ Achievements” features photographs and artwork of wounded, ill and injured marines and sailors participating in activities like horsemanship and even taking part in missions.

April Peterson, the exhibit’s project manager says they’re showcasing what these Marines are doing as they are moving through recovery, rehab and then reintegration.

The exhibit is located on the museum’s second floor, and will be on display through May 10.
