Editorial Reviews

Booklist
The Wounded Warrior Handbook brings together information concerning medical treatment; rehabilitation; counseling; support; transition; and financial, legal, and tax matters. This handbook is a good purchase for academic libraries and is particularly recommended for public libraries.
Foreword Reviews
This Handbook first addresses the recovery process, from the traumatic injury event onward, for the active serviceman or woman. It gives practical advice on everything from spotting the symptoms of depression to travel instructions for visiting family. It explains the terms of separation from military service and the process for determining and appealing the so-important physical disability status. . . . One useful chapter includes a discussion of financial, legal, and tax issues faced by active and discharged troops. Finally, a chapter on bereavement covers everything from grief support to burial expenses, military funerals, and death benefits. . . .Readers will discover that, despite recent scandals in VA hospitals and the common perception that the US does not support its wounded veterans and their loved ones, assistance in every conceivable aspect of transition and reintegration is available. And throughout, Philpott and Hill offer names, addresses, phone numbers, and Web addresses.
The Standard Times
It contains a wealth of data that is and will be helpful on a continuing basis for different segments of our population. . . . It's pertinent information for those seeking specific kinds of post deployment/combat assistance, be it physical, mental, emotional or spiritual. . . . The Wounded Warrior Handbook does an excellent job of making clear what can benefit those who have served our country.
Veterans For Peace
Philpott and Hill have compiled an invaluable list of things that vets, their families, other loved ones, friends and even private citizens can do to help vets return to society.
Gazette
Offers a well-organized checklist of do's and don'ts for veterans, their families and friends and for others who want to understand their problems and challenges and to help them. The value of this book extends beyond health and injury related issues to broader aspects of reintegrating into civilian life.
American Reference Books Annual
This item will be of interest to veterans and those who live with or serve them, and is suitable for the reference or circulating collections of public, academic, and hospital libraries, along with VFW halls and medical professionals dealing with this type of patient.

Library Journal

Philpott (Education Facility Security Handbook; ed., Homeland Defense Journal) and Hill, president of a consulting provider and a U.S. Marine Corps volunteer, offer straightforward answers to questions commonly asked by wounded U.S. military veterans and their family members as they struggle with the complexities of receiving their needed care. As the authors reveal, over 25,000 service members have sustained injury in the war in Iraq, and approximately half of these injuries have been serious enough to require medical evacuation back to the United States. Well organized, comprehensive, and relatively easy to follow, the material covers, e.g., obtaining medical treatment and post-treatment rehabilitation, setting up mental-health counseling, family support, and the difficult transition from wounded soldier to citizen veteran. The authors also explain filing for support from agencies like the Veterans Administration (VA) and the Department of Defense. The extensive listing of web sites and other contact information for veteran support agencies is alone worth the price of this valuable resource. Essential for all helping professionals who work with veterans and their family members, this belongs in all VA hospitals and clinics. Highly recommended for university libraries supporting the helping professions and larger public libraries.
