As the news media has noted (such as in this article), the US has begun pulling out its forces from Iraq's cities, allowing that country's forces to maintain the peace there themselves.   But while several thousand US troops from Iraq will be sent over to Afganistan to assist soldiers, almost as many troops will be returning home with various physical and emotional disabilities received during their service in the Middle East.

  

The Disabled American Veterans organization assists returning soldiers and other vets with counseling, physical therapy and other services to help them get on with their lives.  If you're a vet with a disability, their web site explains what their goals are about here and how they can help you.   If you're not a veteran but are otherwise interested in assisting these returning soldiers readjust to their respective disabilities and situations, you can show your support by donating a contribution here, or seeing what nearby volunteer opportunities are available
