Assisting Our “Hidden Heroes”

In World War II, four percent of those who fought came home wounded. A recent Pew Research Center survey reports that 16 percent of post-9/11 veterans were seriously wounded in combat. With more service members returning home with significant injuries that often times require long-term care, young spouses and parents find themselves in unfamiliar roles as caregivers. Often called the ‘hidden heroes,’ families of veterans are often unprepared to take care of their wounded sons and daughters, husbands and wives.
