The commission held its final public meeting to discuss and vote on recommendations to the president concerning care for America’s returning injured and wounded servicemen and women. The panel issued six broad recommendations intended to transform the system for military health care and veterans' assistance that had been the subject of widespread criticism from veterans and others. The proposals included creating “recovery coordinators” who would help each seriously injured service member navigate the complexities of care, rehabilitation and disability; giving the Department of Veterans Affairs sole responsibility for determining payments for wounded veterans; and taking aggressive steps to prevent and treat post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. close
