The Amputee Coalition Honors U.S. Veterans for their Service

Nov 11, 2020 |

The Amputee Coalition would like to thank our veterans and wish you a safe Veterans Day. We are grateful for the opportunity to honor and support you for your service, and we recognize all who have served.

To veterans who are living with limb loss: we see you; we hear you. Our goal is to support you and our entire veteran community with education, support, advocacy, and information about further limb loss prevention. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected each of us in different ways, and we want you to know we are here for you. No one should go through their limb loss journey alone.

We offer many supports for veterans, family and friends, and care partners, some of which include:

Not everyone has information about the type of limb loss they’re living with. Whether you lost a limb during your military service or after, if you, your care partner, or friends and family members have any questions about living with limb loss, please call the National Limb Loss Resource Center at 888-267-5669, and press 1. You will be able to speak with a specialist from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. ET who can assist you with your needs and help make any necessary referrals.

We are committed to ensuring veterans with limb loss are honored, supported and have access to the supports and resources they need to navigate their recovery and rehabilitation process.
