Military OneSource provides wounded warrior specialty consultation services to help eligible wounded, ill or injured service members, veterans and their families get immediate help for issues related to health care, facilities and benefits. The service isn't limited to just those with combat injuries or a military disability — service members and veterans injured in accidents or battling serious illnesses are also eligible.
Consultants are available to help with:
- Questions about health care and benefits
- Getting additional support
- Reporting problems with military facilities
- Support for non-medical issues, like transportation needs, legal issues, respite care and much more
Each service branch operates a wounded warrior program to help service members and their families with non-medical issues associated with transitioning back to duty or civilian life. Military OneSource specialty consultants work with these programs and the Department of Veterans Affairs to quickly connect callers to the resources they need. Your eligibility to use the service doesn't end when you leave a military treatment facility.
