- Online interactive tool offers information on benefits to empower warriors -

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Beginning today, wounded warriors injured in the current conflicts will have access to a new and cutting edge resource designed to educate them about the benefits and compensation they are entitled to as a result of their injuries.

In addition to offering full time benefits counselors on staff to assist with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Disability Compensation claims process, Wounded Warrior Project will now offer Web Advocate, an online tool available to warriors 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Using an easy, interactive body map, warriors will be able to pinpoint their injuries and receive immediate feedback on their VA disability ratings and compensation as well as ancillary benefits.

"Wounded Warrior Project's mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors," said John Roberts, Executive Vice President of Mental Health and Warrior Engagement.  "We know how cumbersome and frustrating the claims process can be. It is our hope that by offering our warriors this information in an accessible way, we are educating them and working to ensure they receive the benefits they so rightly deserve."

Armed with the knowledge they gain from the site, warriors can address their benefits and compensation concerns with WWP counselors and be better informed when working with the VA.  Wounded Warrior Project is the only veteran's service organization to create and offer a new and innovative program of this kind.
