Since 2001, about 2.5 million men and women have served in the U.S. military. One-third of these service members served more than once. About half of all returning veterans have some level of service-connected disability. For many veterans, the transition to civilian life means leraning to life with a disability. Today’s “yellow ribbon” spirit has resulted in better services, protections and treatments for wounded warriors.
