PVA Member Ed smiles for the camera in his home in Florida.

After 15 years of service, Ed’s life was turned upside down by a catastrophic spinal cord injury he sustained on base and in the presence of his wife and child. Instantly, he became an incomplete quadriplegic.

Ed now lives alone in Florida. He has to coordinate his own around-the-clock care, which has proven both difficult and expensive. Read more about Ed's experience with caregiving and how you can improve care options for our deserving Veterans.
