Labyrinth in the making, June 2010 (Source: Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund)The newest labyrinth in the Washington, DC, area is at a cutting-edge facility for studying and treating the most difficult cases of traumatic brain injury and post-traumatic stress disorder among American military service members. The $65 milliion National Intrepid Center for Excellence opened its doors in June 2010 on the grounds of the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, MD. The seven-circuit Santa Rosa labyrinth, with Chartres-style lunations and petals, is at the heart of the center's "Central Park" refuge, along with skylights, benches, and plants. Funding for the Center came from the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.
