The Commonwealth of Virginia is the home to over 800,000 veterans who have served in conflicts ranging from World War II to the current engagements in the gulf region, Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF/Iraq) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF/Afghanistan). The Virginia Wounded Warrior Program has been charged with coordinating and facilitating the services that are needed by Virginia’s veterans who have served in the United States military. In order to evaluate how to best serve and facilitate services for these veterans, the VWWP has commissioned a needs assessment of Virginia’s veterans that is summarized in this report.
