National Resource Directory (NRD)
The DoD created a one-stop resource to be used by our wounded, ill, or injured service members, veterans, families, Federal Recovery Coordinators, and clinical and non-clinical managers. The NRD contains public and private sector services and resources in support of recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration; and is accessible on-line.
Deployment Health Support Directorate
DoD established the Deployment Health Support Directorate to see that the medical lessons learned from previous conflicts and deployments are integrated into current policy, doctrine and practice. The Directorate addresses deployment-related health threats to service members. Part of the Deployment Health focus is on outreach. Current information on deployment-related health issues is published on an interactive web site, Deployment LINK. The Directorate operates a toll free, direct hotline number where staff members assist callers in finding the answers they seek in relation to current and past deployments, helping them locate lost medical records, and providing contact information in the Department of Veteran Affairs. That number is 1.800.497.6261.
The shift of a service member to medical retirement, transfer to the Department of Veterans Affairs, or separation from the military is known as Transition. The Department of Defense has a mandatory Transition Assistance Program (TAP) for all transitioning or separating service members.
Employment opportunities for spouses of wounded service members
Spouses often ask how they can find work after their service member is injured. Military OneSource offers practical tips and includes information on entering the work force when your spouse has been severely injured.
Until military families are relieved of the weight of war, we hope you will continue to contribute to their wellbeing.
