9781331422716: The Problem of the Reconstruction and Re-Education of the Disabled Soldier (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Problem of the Reconstruction and Re-Education of the Disabled Soldier

The present address deals with the means by which this is to be accomplished.

The problem concerns the public in two ways. First, there are few homes where some near or distant relative or friend is not or will not be in the service and, second, the success of the movement to be described here must depend finally upon sound public sentiment and the education of the public to an appreciation of the character and gravity of the problem to be met. For this reason before discussing the specific question of ways and means, something must be said of the proper attitude of the public toward these returned disabled men. Those soldiers who return without an arm or a leg or with a disabled or useless limb are not to be regarded as poor cripples to be commiserated and set apart as unfortunates whose usefulness is ended. They will not in the future be compelled or allowed to sell lead pencils or boot laces on the street corners as their most suitable occupation. They are rather to be regarded as public spirited citizens who have incurred some physical disability in the pursuit of their service to their country, a disability to be regarded as a badge of honor rather than as a physical defect. This disability in most cases can be, in greater or less measure, compensated for by proper treatment and training, and in many instances the disabled man will find himself in a position to earn better wages than ever before in his life. To substantiate this somewhat optimistic point of view, one may quote briefly French and German experience.
