Wounded Warrior Web site upgraded
Placeholder Image
The Department of Defense announced this week that its National Resource Directory Web site for wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans, their families and those who support them, recently received a comprehensive system upgrade to provide users with easier access.  
This Web site is a collaborative effort between the Departments of Defense, Veterans Affairs and Labor, and compiles federal, state, local and nonprofit resources for wounded warriors, veterans, family members and caregivers in a single, searchable site.
“We worked closely with users of the National Resource Directory to find out how to make the information they need easier to find,” said Noel Koch, deputy under secretary of defense for Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy. “The resulting re-design is easier to navigate and adds useful new features.”
The upgrade makes the latest wounded warrior and veteran issues easier to follow. A new “bookmark and share” application helps visitors alert others to the content they’ve found most helpful through social bookmarking, Facebook and Twitter. Visitors can
also subscribe to e-mail updates to receive new content, events and features based on their interests and needs.
“There are thousands of programs and benefits available to wounded warriors and their families, from health care and housing to education and employment assistance,” Koch said. “Our people must have an easy way to sift through it all to find the resources that are most helpful for their circumstances, especially while they’re dealing with what can be overwhelming challenges. That’s why we’ve partnered with the VA and Department of Labor to offer the National Resource Directory.”
