On any given day, almost 300,000 veterans suffer from the symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). One of the biggest problems many of these veterans face is getting treatment. The Warrior Salute Program (WSP) uses distinctive solutions to help those in need.
The Warrior Salute Program helps soldiers suffering with TBIs and PTSD re-learn skills demanded by civilian life in order to help them live independently. The way the soldiers re-learn depends on their individual progress and success with particular therapies. One person may use music therapy whereas another may adjust through learning a new skill.
For their first participant, the WSP used private partnerships to provide a furnished apartment as long as the veteran was attending therapy. Further, the veteran is given two meals a day and as his therapy ends, the WSP will help him find a job. The WSP currently survives on these private partnerships as well as local fundraising.
The Warrior Salute Program could very well serve as a pilot program on a national scale. It would however, require a series of private agencies to partner with both the VA and the military.
