Wounded, Ill, Injured

The National Military Family Association strongly believes that wounded service members have wounded families and that our Nation must ensure the emotional, financial, and readjustment requirements of these families are met. A quote from President Lincoln's second inaugural address so eloquently states what our obligations are to families of wounded service members: “…to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan."

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. Our website provides military families with a basic understanding of the overall process that will take place if their service member is wounded, ill, or injured (WII) in the line of duty. We have broken the information down into three categories: casualty notification, case management programs, and legal issues.

Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
