Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Applauds the Senate for Passing Crucial Family Caregiver Legislation
Date:11/19/2009

c Stress Disorder, require near-constant supervision to ensure their safety. This legislation at last offers these families, who have sacrificed so much, the promise that some of their own basic needs - including respite, health coverage, counseling, and modest financial assistance - will be met. These are critical to ensure that these families will be able to sustain their critical caregiving.

S. 1963 was supported by a broad coalition of Veterans and Military Service Organizations and WWP was proud to work with groups like Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA), National Military Family Association (NMFA) and Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) on ensuring passage.

"Senate passage of this legislation is a crucial step in seeing family caregiver supports become a reality," Nardizzi continued. "We look forward to working, together with our coalition, on ensuring a strong final bill becomes law for our wounded warriors."

Steven Nardizzi and family caregivers are available for interviews.
