Department of Defense Launches National Resource Directory For Wounded Warriors, Families And Caregivers


The Department of Defense today launched the National Resource Directory, a collaborative effort between the departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs.

The directory is a Web-based network of care coordinators, providers and support partners with resources for wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans, their families, families of the fallen and those who support them.

"The directory is the visible demonstration of our national will and commitment to As new links are added each day by providers and partners, coverage from coast to coast will grow even greater ensuring that no part of that journey will ever be made alone," said Lynda C. Davis, Ph.D., deputy under secretary of defense for military community and family policy.

Located at http://www.nationalresourcedirectory.org , the directory offers more than 10,000 medical and non-medical services and resources to help service members and veterans achieve personal and professional goals along their journey from recovery through rehabilitation to community reintegration.

"The VA is extremely proud to be a partner in this innovative resource. This combination of federal, state, and community-based resources will serve as a tremendous asset for all service members, veterans, their families and those who care for them. The community is essential to the successful reintegration of our veterans, and these groups greatly enhance the directory's scope," said Karen S. Guice, M.D., executive director, federal recovery care coordination program at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

"The National Resource Directory will prove to be a valuable tool for wounded, ill, and injured service members and their families as they wind their way through the maze of benefits and services available to them in their transition to civilian life. The Department of Labor is pleased to have the opportunity to work with our partners at DoD," said Charles S. Ciccolella, the assistant secretary of labor for the veterans' employment and training service.

The National Resource Directory is organized into six major categories: Benefits and Compensation; Education, Training and Employment; Family and Caregiver Support; Health; Housing and Transportation; and Services and Resources. It also provides helpful checklists, Frequently Asked Questions, and connections to peer support groups. All information on the Web site can be found through a general or state and local search tool.

The National Resource Directory's launch in November is a key feature of Warrior Care Month.

Whats wrong with the VA,DAV the rest, why do we as Americans keep letting the government do this to us, they will promise you schooling, health care,money, bonus's, combat pay,special training.

But just try and collect it when you need it buddy. I wont even go into the fact that the VA is a red hearing run by x military, to control the mobs of Old and wounded VA members, from making to much noise about how the ,military treats them after the wars.

I think we as Americans should hold our military to its word because obviously if whats going on and always has gone on with veterans The system doesn't work.

The military will spend more on bottled water in Iraq than they will spend healing the people we sent there for this WMD fiasco.

Good luck with this.

Hum... Should I assume that you are a veteran? If so I am sorry that you have had a difficult time with this system, yes it is defiantly flawed and way underfunded. I am a veteran myself I served over seas I saw combat, and was shot 3 times I have had many battles with the flawed system, I fought for almost 9 years to get my 100% rating, and they were nit my biggest fan because I was a true pain in the systems [censored word], So I can see why you would feel discontent for them, however they did help me fight and beat cancer all 3 times I was diagnosed with it and if it is was not for them I would not have my beautiful twin daughters. The resources for veterans are out there, but they don’t get handed to us in a gift basket unfortunately we usually have to continue to work for them and fight for them, and too many vets are either unaware of the resources available to them or decide to stop fighting. I am very driven, I knew what my injuries entailed, I knew I the 50% they gave me to begin with was not right as my body continues to suffer from my service and there is no getting better, so I fought, I appealed I was denied I appealed again and continued to provide evidence until they could not ignore me, it took 9 years but, I won, the system is slow, it is very flawed but, it can work, don’t give up if you can’t do it alone there are advocates that will help you fight.

Great advice Puttytat. They want us to just take their decision and forget about it. Don't take no for an answer and appeal. WE have nothing but time on our side.

Getting that VA disability ranks with getting the Social Security disability. They just don't make it easy.

This is For Park County Colorado Veterans! There is a grant to help with several your mortgage ($500.00 one time only) $300.00 for the Utilities and a 300.00 Gift card to either Safeway or KingSoopers. Call Bobbi Gore at the Senior Coalition. Very easy qualifying! Fax in your Drivers license and a copy of your DD-214. That's it! This is True and not a joke.
