Surviving war today carries increased hazards of a different sort for tens of thousands of American men and women. Wounds that were fatal in past wars today are producing a generation of disabled soldiers, sailors and Marines. America is also confronted by skyrocketing rates of soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), combat and operational stress reactions, traumatic brain injury, loss of limbs and other injuries. As a nation we are woefully unprepared for disability as the true legacy of contemporary war.
