One of the top priorities of the Department of Veterans Affairs is the provision of care for Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom veterans. Women veterans are the fastest growing group of new VA healthcare users, and little is known regarding the health and healthcare needs of women veterans with traumatic limb loss. This study examined the presence of physical and mental health conditions among women Operation Iraqi Freedom/Operation Enduring Freedom veterans and servicemembers who experienced major limb loss (amputation). Compared with men, women reported more migraine headaches, but reported similar frequency of all other physical and mental health conditions.
