Clearly, there is a great deal of goodwill to welcome returning veterans and support them in their transition to civilian life. Since 2001, about 2.5 million veterans served in Iraq or Afghanistan.   About half of these returning veterans will have a disability.  Is this goodwill translating into real efforts to enhance the quality of life and work for returning veterans with disabilities?  During this webinar, we will examine some research studies on the status of veterans with disabilities in community participation, education and employment.  Then, we will review three MakingWorkHappen—Toolkits about veterans with disabilities:  One Toolkit for veterans, one Toolkit for disability service providers, and one Toolkit for employers.
