The typical wounded soldier must complete and file 22 forms following an active-duty injury. To many soldiers and their families coping with the shock and reality of the injuries, figuring out what to do next-even completing tasks as seemingly easy as submitting paperwork-can be overwhelming and confusing. Written with these men and women in mind, The Wounded Warrior Handbook provides our wounded heroes and their families with quick, straightforward answers to the questions they suddenly face and guides them through the deluge of processes, procedures, and policies they must adhere to in order to receive the care they deserve and need. Comprehensive and easy-to-use, the Handbook compiles information regarding medical treatment, rehabilitation, counseling, support, and transition, including Symptoms, treatment options, and information resources of common injuries Programs to help families reach and care for their injured soldiers Definitions of the seven classifications of "casualty" and the notification process for next of kin Documents family members should carry when traveling to see their loved ones Challenges of reintegrating into everyday life, and tips and resources for succeeding Guidance for finding a job that matches an injured soldier's physical abilities and skills Organizations offering advocacy and legal assistance Locations of Veterans Affairs hospitals, medical centers, and clinics Whether you work with members of the military or support a community that does, you can help our embattled men and women make the transition from active duty to post-war domestic life with this time-saving and life-restoring book.
