The Wounded Warrior Handbook: A Resource Guide for Returning Veterans

Government Institutes, Lanham, MD, 2009
 

Twenty-two forms. That’s the amount of paperwork a typical soldier must complete following an active-duty injury. Over 25,000 US service men and women have been injured since the 2003 invasion of Iraq. For many, the chaos of a war injury is exacerbated by the confusion of what to do next in a sea of government red tape. The Wounded Warrior Handbook provides fast, clear-cut answers for wounded soldiers and their families, helping them locate and qualify for the care they need and deserve. The reference guide compiles information gathered from hundreds of sources in the public domain (much of the material comes from the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration). Included are what transitioning soldiers need to know about medical treatment, rehabilitation, counseling and support. Legal, financial and tax issues facing active and discharged troops are also discussed, as well as bereavement issues of grief support, burial expenses and death benefits.
