Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Saluting Blind Veterans

Following World War II, with the return of soldiers who had lost vision during combat, Orientation and Mobility began to be offered to veterans in Avon, Connecticut.

According to data from the Veterans Administration, more than 158,000 people in the U.S. have a severe impairment or blindness. Read more from Paths to Literacy in Honoring Blind Veterans.
