SUPPORTING THE MILITARY AFTER
THEY RETURN HOME FROM BATTLE
Our country needs to do more to help military members once they return home. Whether they are still or no longer on active duty, there are many ongoing physical, mental, and emotional consequences as a result of engaging in battle. For many of these 2.2 million wounded warriors, the physical and emotional consequences of their wounds have endured long after they left the military. Veterans who suffered major service-related injuries are more than twice as likely to say they had difficulties readjusting to civilian life. They are almost three times as likely as other veterans to report they have suffered from post-traumatic stress (PTS). And they are less likely in later life to be in overall good health or to hold full-time jobs. Here are more facts:
One out of every 10 veterans alive today was seriously injured at some point while serving in the military, and three-quarters of those injuries occurred in combat.
More than 52,000 servicemen and women have been physically injured in recent military conflicts.
500,000 are living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder.
320,000 are experiencing debilitating brain trauma.
It's time to start a bigger conversation about supporting the military when they return home. We will donate 12% of the proceeds of every Veterans case purchased to a charity doing good for wounded warriors.
Do you know an injured veteran who has received support after they have returned home from conflict?
