When going out with your veteran partner, Treat your date as you would treat any other person you care about, regardless of any physical or mental impairments sustained due to his/her service. If your date has a disability, assume that he/she understands his/her own needs better than you do. Allow your date to tell you how he/she would like to be treated, rather than offering unwanted help that may seem patronizing. In fact for those veterans who have been disabled in service, there are again a slew of support schemes.
Vocational Rehabilitation is a program which helps eligible disabled veterans get and keep lasting, suitable jobs. Then there is Service-Disabled VA Life Insurance for those who have suffered service-connected disability. Disability Compensation is another benefit paid to a veteran because of injuries or diseases that happened while on active duty, or were made worse by active military service. Disability pension is a benefit paid to wartime veterans with limited income who are no longer able to work. Thus there are many support schemes for former service personnel and your partner’s status as a veteran should never be a cause for pity or discomfort on your or other people’s part.
