Speaking as someone who has a acquired brain injury and who worked with persons with disabilities for the last 15 years of his career, I think this is a wonderful idea and I hope this campaign is successful beyond even what is imagined today. One of my best friends is a man who is about 7 years older than I and who has cerebral palsy so severe that he cannot even speak intelligibly. He was institutionalized at the age of 4 for several decades. He now lives in his own apartment with the help of personal assistants who are paid through Medicaid. Housing such as this would reduce his dependence on personal assistants, although I do not see it as completely eliminating this need. As I said, the need for this is enormous and not just limited to our returning grievously wounded veterans!
