Wounded Warriors / Disabled Veterans

Some of the bravest soldiers are those that live with war wounds that are debilitating or paralyzing in some way, living day to day with the physical reminder of their time serving our country. MilitaryConnection.com thinks it is important to recognize these soldiers and provide them with as much support as possible. For this reason, we try to include information and resources that these wounded warriors can use day to day, to lighten their mood or simply to stay in touch with others in similar situations. All of the information and resources found on Military Connection is free to users and there is something for everyone. Check back regularly to view updates and get the most up-to-date information available on the web.
