English term or phrase:wounded warriors
This is part of a political address. I'm stuck with the term wounded warriors. A literal translation doesn't work for me. I guess the Spanish "guerreros heridos" doesn't carry the same idiomatic, and contextual connotation that this term has in English. Any ideas? TIA.
And new tax credits for companies that hire veterans and wounded warriors – tax credits which Congress should make permanent.
As Cristina has alluded to, the importance of capturing some of the nuanced meaning included in the (alliterative and) often-invoked "wounded warriors"---a phrase frequently heard in speeches (in the US media) and used as the name of a program (in the US) that helps these people reintegrate into society---should be readily apparent. It's not simply a soldier who got hurt or the injured in war; it's a little bit more.
