INJURED/DISABLED VETERANS
 
Our troops serve us unconditionally and they deserve all the support we can offer.  Getting injured on the job while in the military can be very challenging.  Even though our government has promised them the best of medical treatment and rehabilitation there are still those who fall in the cracks and don't get what they need or deserve.  P.F.I.W. is supporting all injured troops and we will help in any way we can.
 
New for Veterans
Veterans can now setup an online account for the VA.  This allows the veteran to file for benefits and disability compensation and to check on the status of each claim.  This is all done at the VA website under ebenefits the gateway to a veterans information.  There are two classifications of accounts that can be setup.  The first is a basic account which only allows a veteran to file for benefits.  The second is a premium account that allows a veteran to view the status of any claims filed, however the premium account requires that a veteran either go to a local treatment facility or calls the VA to verify the identity of the veteran.
 
Addiction and Suicide Amongst Veterans: Finding Hope in the Darkness
Many brave men and women who serve our country live through traumatic experiences during deployment. Today, there’s more awareness about the many veterans who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of their experiences, yet much work remains. PTSD is one of the primary reasons veterans may turn to drugs or alcohol – as a coping mechanism to deal with the traumatic memories, feelings of depression, and anxiety resulting from PTSD – particularly if the disorder is inadequately treated or, in the worst-case scenario, undiagnosed or untreated at all.
