Online Submission
The purpose of this monograph is to present documents that discuss issues related to improving access to vocational rehabilitation services and return to work rates of African American Wounded Warriors, Gulf War and Vietnam War Era veterans with disabilities. This monograph also includes a review of relevant literature on barriers to employment for African American Veterans. The 7 documents in this monograph on the rehabilitation of African American Wounded Warriors, Gulf War, and Vietnam War Era veterans with disabilities include a preface and two sections organized into: (1) general documents and (2) "white papers." The two general documents are: "The National Association for Black Veterans (NABVETS): A Brief History and the Mission" (Reverend James Greenwood); and "Veterans Stateside Readjustment Services Available to Wounded Warriors" (Captain Francine Tryon). The four "White Papers are: "The Role of State VR Agencies in Assisting African American Wounded Warriors, Gulf War and Vietnam War Era Veterans with Disabilities to Obtain Competitive Jobs" (Dr. Michael D. O'Brien); "Improving Vocational Rehabilitation Access and Employment Success for African American Homeless Veterans with Disabilities" (Dr. Sonja Feist-Price & Ms. Neena Khanna); "African American Veterans, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Employment" (Dr. Bobbie J. Atkins); and "Barriers to VR Service Access and Return to Work Outcomes among African American Veterans: The Need for Evidence-Based Research and Service Strategies" (Dr. Corey L. Moore, Dr. Jean Johnson and Ms. Nkechi Uchegbu). The authors advocate for the Veterans Administration (VA) and Federal funding entities to consider developing future national research and service initiatives to address barriers to vocational rehabilitation services and successful return to work outcomes among African American Wounded Warriors, Gulf War, and Vietnam War Era Veterans with disabilities. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
