Some Marines will be unable to care for themselves, requiring the constant support of a caregiver. Others physical needs may be less substantial, but all Marines will benefit from the emotional and physical support of family and friends. There are benefits available to help Marines and family members adjust to a new life after recovering from a wound, illness or injury.
