This report, the result of a Task Force on Returning Global War on Terror Heroes, was commissioned to improve the delivery of Federal services and benefits to Global War on Terror servicemembers and veterans. The report addresses the following concerns; identify and examine existing Federal services that currently are provided to returning Global War on Terror (GWOT) servicemembers; identify existing gaps in such services; seek recommendations from appropriate Federal agencies on ways to fill those gaps; ensure that appropriate Federal agencies are communicating and cooperating effectively; and develop a Government-wide Action Plan that ensures that in providing services to these servicemembers, appropriate Federal agencies are communicating and cooperating effectively. The results include 25 recommendations to improve delivery of Federal services that identify responsible agency as well as a discussion, gap analysis, impact statement, and implementation.
