Support Veterans with Severe Combat-Related Injuries

1 post in this topic

Due to advances in medicine and body armor, American

soldiers are surviving combat-related injuries at

markedly higher rates than in past conflicts. This

means that more of them are able to come home after

being severely wounded. And these veterans need our

support.

Specifically, they need help in adapting to the

life-altering changes that come with surviving severe

injuries. Won't you ask Congress to make sure they have

the support and health care required?

Many of these wounded heroes need prosthetic limbs and

suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder. And there's

also a rise in an "invisible wound", traumatic brain

injury. According to the Walter Reed Army Medical

Center, between January 2003 and May 2005, 31% of those

admitted had some kind of brain injury."

These brave men and women have given much for this

country, and as a nation, we need to care about what

happens to them after they come home. Please tell

Congress not to forget about our wounded heroes and

support their health care needs.
