Review for Operation Homefront, Inc, San Antonio, TX, USA
My husband returned home from Afghanistan a quadriplegic. Though I was trained to care for his physical needs, I had no idea what was in store for me in dealing with the psychological and emotional trauma resulting from his physical dibilitation. We had 3 children (the youngest born while he was deployed), all under 7 years old. I was so shell-shocked & focused on the technical aspects of our lives - finances, career prospects, home/vehicle modifications, etc - that I was completely blind-sided by the intimate issues that confronted our relationship because of his new fears & insecurities. Operation Homefront helped me connect with other wives of wounded warriors, so that I could vent, ask advice, seek resources & government policy information - basically recognize that I was not as alone as I always felt being confined to my home with my husband's needs and frustrations.
