This book is targeted toward helping Army leaders of all levels to assist wounded, injured, and ill soldiers and their families while undergoing medical rehabilitation or interacting with essential healthcare and community reintegration services. Many facets are involved in the successful healing and reintegration of soldiers, whether they continue on active duty or become successful veterans. This book should serve as a valuable tool for learning about the resources and processes that will maximize each wounded, injured, or ill soldiera€™s chances for success and be a resource for leaders. Information is provided about the Army Warrior Transition Command and key Army, federal agencies, veteran and military service organizations, and selected other organizations and their services and programs. Accessible information about essential principles, practices, and definitions in medical rehabilitation are included. Also presented are several vignettes on soldiers who have successfully adapted to their impairments to lead remarkable lives as soldiers or Army veterans.
