Victoria Saenz's insight:

Occupational therapy for these wounded warriors does so much for them as they are assisted with not only learning to be fully functional again, but also in that some make such progress that they are even able to return to duty.  Having faith in their capabilities is a huge part in this process - their will is there, they just need someone to believe in them and push them to full recovery.
