My husband is a two-time combat veteran. As a result of his service, he now has multiple injuries, including PTSD and a brain injury. Since his return in 2008, my day-to-day life has been one battle after another - fighting to get him the proper discharge, fighting to get him his VA benefits, fighting to get him proper care, and fighting against the self-loathing and apathy that pulled him down so low that he couldn't see the point in trying to recover. As his caregiver, and the mother of two small children, it...

The Wounded Warriors Family Support is AN AWESOME ORGANIZATION!!! After my husband nearly lost his life in Iraq his AW2 counseler referred us to the WWFS charity. They flew our family to Florida where they put us up in a beautiful townhouse for an entire week and gave us 7 day passes to go to Disney theme parks. They included a deep tissue massage for my husband which greatly helped with his injurie site. All in all the WWFS gave our family life changing memories that we would have probably never been able to...
