Boosting Care for “Wounded Warriors” Addressed in N.J.

Boosting Care for “Wounded Warriors” Addressed in N.J.

TRENTON – On the eve of Veterans Day, Assemblymen Vince Mazzeo and Sgt. Bob Andrzejczak announced they have introduced a package of bills to boost assistance for “wounded warriors” and their caregivers, an ever-growing demographic that faces unique challenges in the post-9/11 era.

The lawmakers were inspired by a number of unsettling statistics regarding the care of wounded veterans in the post-9/11 era, most notably that an estimated 1.1 million civilians are providing volunteer care-giving services to wounded veterans. Meanwhile, a Rand Corporation study conducted in March found that 53 percent of post-9/11 voluntary caregivers have no support network and as many as 40 percent do not have their own health care.
