Honoring our common ground: Veterans and civilians with disabilities join forces

On June 3, Lonnie Moore and I had the honor of joining Arizona Center for Disability Law Executive Director Peri Jude Radecic, Deputy Executive Director Ed Myers and J.J. Rico, member of the Arizona Protection and Advocacy for Individuals with Mental Illness Council, to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.

Lonnie and I represent the coming together of the Veterans community and the disability community. He is a disabled Iraq War Veteran and I am a civilian who is partially paralyzed as the result of a spinal cord injury.

Read the column about veterans and the disabled, written by Jonathan Young, chairman of the National Council on Disability, with the assistance of council member Lonnie Moore. Disability Blog is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy.
