Wounded Warriors retreat designs shown
(2008-05-02)
(NET Radio) - Student designs for a proposed Wounded Warriors retreat were on display at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln today (Friday). Five teams of architecture students showed U.S. Senator Chuck Hagel and others their designs for the retreat. It will include individual cabins, a swimming pool, a chapel, and a lodge named for Hagel and former Senator Bob Kerrey, also wounded in Vietnam. Hagel says the project is a reminder of the price of war. He says it's easy for policymakers to get a nation into war:

"But then we walk away. And what are the consequences of war? Who fights the war? What happens to their families?" Hagel said

"And this kind of project draws attention to the warriors and their families, and addresses some of the consequences of war"

The retreat will be located in the northern Panhandle town of Crawford, if enough funds are raised. It's being planned as a place for wounded veterans and their families to rest, recuperate and reconnect.
