Recovering and living well after physical injury
Veterans who experienced physical injuries talk about their experiences. As they recovered and transitioned from the military, they faced difficult circumstances. Reaching out for support helped them overcome their challenges. Listen as they share stories of strength and resilience.
Check the MTC page for VA answers to questions like:
“What should I know about managing a physical injury?”,
“What should I keep an eye out for after being injured?”, and
“What can I do about the emotional effects related to a physical injury?”
