Abstract:

In response to concerns about care and benefit disparities raised by United States Army service members severely injured in Iraq, the Defense Business Board DBB studied these concerns in order to bring them to the attention of senior leaders in the Department of Army and Department of Veterans Affairs. The Task Group limited its scope to those severely injured as defined by Veterans Health Administration Directive 2009-018, determined unfit by the Physical Disability Evaluation System but approved for an exception to policy allowing the Wounded Warrior to remain on active duty.
