Warrior Care Month 2010
November is Warrior Care Month, and this year’s theme is “Army Strong—Family Strong: caring for wounded, ill, or injured Soldiers by supporting their Families and caregivers.”
Families and Caregivers are primary providers of comfort and support for wounded, ill, or injured Soldiers as they heal and transition. Army leadership strongly believes that :
The support and assistance of Families and caregivers is an essential element of the healing and recovery process for every wounded, ill, or injured Soldier.
The Army actively involves Families and caregivers warrior care programs and processes.
Soldiers’ Families and caregivers have a voice in shaping future programs and policies that affect warrior care.
Commemorative events will take place at 29 Warrior Transition Units and nine Community-Based Warrior Transition Units throughout the United States and Europe. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) Advocates will present on how local communities can help the families of local wounded, ill, or injured soldiers and veterans at locations across the country.
