Veterans' Health

People who serve in the military often have different health issues than other people. For example, someone in a war zone may lose a leg and need years of medical and psychological treatment. This not only affects the veteran but his or her family’s health as well.

Support Groups & Forums

These sites allow patients and caregivers to discuss their experiences with illnesses, treatments, and other health matters. Any information or opinions posted are those of the forum users themselves and are not a substitute for professional medical advice.
