Serving Our Veterans

Thanks to improved battlefield trauma care, many of the men and women who are fighting 21st-century wars survive grievous injuries that leave them forever scarred. Post-traumatic stress disorders haunt countless others. When these veterans return home, they need enduring care to heal body and mind, and guide them toward a transformed life. But high rates of suicide, unemployment, and divorce in military families tell us we are failing to serve many who served us. How can we do better for our wounded warriors and those who support them? Do we need to think differently about the health needs of women vets? How do we create networks of mutual support between veterans and their communities?
