At the center of the initiative is a new website, America’s Heroes at Work, which will provide information about TBI and PTSD, as well as tools and guidance on how employers can offer workplace accommodations to affected individuals, including non-veterans, such as first responders.  The purpose of the program is to provide employers with sufficient information to allay fears and to encourage the hiring of veterans with what are known as “invisible wounds of war.”
