The Arms addresses the invisible wounds of veterans.

by | Apr 22, 2012

Following is a quote from the above link.

“The Arms Forces is a nonprofit organization that embraces the unique needs of veterans who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder. We develop and maintain a network of trained volunteer Life Navigation Coaches who give individual assistance to our wounded warriors who have the invisible wounds of war, at no cost to the veteran. We provide support to families and loved ones through our LEEF Support Experience. We bring about change in the stigma attached to such injuries by raising the consciousness of citizens as to what TBI and PTSD are and what they are not, through educational presentations, speeches and organizational culture.”

I am always thankful for learning of new resources and ideas to help veterans as in The Arms Forces, Embracing the military’s invisible wounds.  As a non-profit this organization works in partnership with all branches of the military to help veterans.  The mission statement: The Arms Forces provide education and programs that allow those who have served or who are now serving in the military who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress disorder find understanding, purpose and direction as they face “the other war” at home living with their invisible injury. They say, “we are the softer side, we hug people!”
