November marks Warrior Care Month, a dedicated time frame for the Army to share information and updates on the programs and initiatives currently provided through the warrior care system to the military and their Families. Throughout Warrior Care Month, the Army will ensure that leaders, Soldiers, Veterans, and Families understand the many ways Army Medicine and the Warrior Care and Transition Program (WCTP) support wounded, ill or injured Soldiers.
Our nation’s Soldiers live Army values day-to-day and through their personal sacrifice. This year, Warrior Care Month spotlights their strength, dedication and resilience in the theme “Show of Strength.” Each week, we will focus on a different “Show of Strength” throughout the warrior care experience: Recovery, Rehabilitation, Reintegration and Reconditioning.
The Warrior Care and Transition Program demonstrates a Show of Strength by:
Ensuring wounded, ill or injured Soldiers have the time, place, and resources to heal at 25 Warrior Transition Units (WTUs) throughout the nation, Europe, and Puerto Rico.
Providing each Soldier with a Triad of Care and multi-disciplinary team focused on meeting personalized long- and short- term goals across six domains of life through the Comprehensive Transition Plan (CTP).
Enabling WTU Soldiers the opportunity to participate in adaptive reconditioning programs that align with their medical situation.
Facilitating Soldiers’ career and employment readiness goals through internships, education programs, and certifications.
Providing personalized support to the Army's most severely wounded, ill or injured through the Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2).
