Study examines hardships of post-9/11 military caretakers


A new study estimates that more than 1.1 million spouses, parents and friends have been caring for injured and disabled veterans who served in the military since Sept. 11, 2001, providing an estimated $3 billion in care annually but often without any formal support and putting their own health at risk.

The RAND Corporation study, “Hidden Heroes: America’s Military Caregivers,” was commissioned by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation, and based on a representative sampling of more than 1,100 people who care for post-9/11 veterans – about 20 percent of an estimated 5.5 million military caregivers across the U.S. More.
