Wounded + Caregivers

lincoln graphic

The National Military Family Association strongly believes wounded service members have wounded families and our Nation must ensure the emotional, financial, and readjustment requirements of these families are met.

Wounded service members aren’t always the only ones who have battle scars. Our Association strongly believes wounded families bear their own battle scars, and it is the responsibility of our Nation to ensure the emotional, financial, and readjustment requirements of these families are met.

Military families ask what resources are available to them if their service member is wounded, injured, or ill. Many have asked for an easy-to-use guide that would help them navigate those first steps after a service member’s injury.

Each wound, injury, and illness are unique. Remember you are not alone. Take some time to explore the information, resources, and benefits available to you so you do not become overwhelmed.
