DoD Wounded, Ill, and/or Injured Compensation and Benefits Handbook

The DoD Compensation and Benefits Handbook was published in September 2016 and then updated in January 2017. This handbook is designed to provide service members and their family with a guide to help answer any questions that may arise pertaining to the service members benefits.

Help Us Set the Table for Recovering Warriors

These dinners are about more than just providing a hot meal to those who have sacrificed so much on our behalf. They're about more than breaking up the monotony of what can be a long and challenging recovery process. They're about more than giving volunteers a chance to meet, interact with, and show support for our service members.

The dinners are about changing the lives of recovering warriors in a positive manner. The dinners let the recovering warriors know that America remembers them; that their sacrifices are appreciated; that they aren't alone. The relationships formed at these dinner tables can be the starting point for the service member to work with the Warrior Support Team during their upcoming reintegration to a civilian lifestyle. You can be part of this healing process.
