For many years, individuals with disabilities have been using sports as a therapeutic tool to overcome serious injury or illness and as a means of recovery.
Military OneSource provides wounded warrior specialty consultation services to help eligible wounded, ill or injured service members, veterans and their families get immediate assistance for issues related to health care, resources, facilities and benefits. Service members and veterans injured in accidents or battling serious illnesses are also eligible.
The Americans with Disabilities Act has been protecting disabled people’s civil rights for more than 25 years, making sure they have the same opportunities as everyone else to be part of everyday American life.
As a wounded warrior, you deserve the easiest possible transition from military to civilian life. A severe injury does change the way you live your life, but it does not have to change the course of your career or the quality of your home life.
