Warrior Transition Command

(WTC)

http://www.wtc.army.mil/index.html/

The WTC Serves as the lead proponent for the Army’s Warrior Care and Transition

program.     The WTC ensures that non-clinical processes and programs that support wounded, ill, and injured Soldiers are integrated and optimized throughout the Army.     It supports the Army’s commitment to the rehabilitation and successful transition of wounded, ill, and injured Soldiers back to active duty or to Veteran status.

Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2)

http://wtc.army.mil/aw2/index.html

The Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) is the official U.S. Army program that assists and advocates for severely wounded, ill, and injured Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families, wherever they are

located regardless of military status.     Warriors in Transition (WTs) who qualify for AW2 are assigned to the program as soon as possible after arriving at the WTU. AW2 supports these Soldiers and their Families throughout their recovery and transition, even into Veteran status.     This program, through the local support of AW2 Advocates, strives to foster the WT’s independence.

Air Force Wounded Warrior Program  (AFWW)

http://www.woundedwarrior.af.mil/ 

The Air Force will take care of its Wounded Warriors.   The Air Force

will fully support the Office of the Secretary of Defense programs to keep highly skilled men and women on active duty. If this is not feasible, the Air Force will ensure Airmen receive enhanced assistance through the AFW2 program.

Marines Wounded Warrior Regiment

(WWR)

http://www.woundedwarriorregiment.org/ 

The Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment provides and facilitates non-medical care to combat and non-combat Wounded, Ill, and Injured (WII) Marines, and Sailors attached to or in direct support of Marine units, and their family members in order to assist them as they return to duty or transition to civilian life.     The WWR assists active, reserve and veteran Marines.    

The Regimental Headquarters element, located in Quantico, VA, commands the operation of two (2) Wounded Warrior Battalions located at Camp Pendleton, California and Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, and multiple detachments in locations around the globe.     The WWR has quickly become a proven unit providing WII Marines, their families, and caregivers support to help them through the processes of recovery and transition.     The Marine Corps care model is unique in that its approach is to ensure recovering Marines return to their units as quickly as their medical conditions will allow.     Allowing Marines to “stay in the fight” is what makes the Marine Corps care model successful.

Wounded Warrior Support Links:

1.  Helping Warriors in Need!     Operation Once in a lifetime is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization created to make the dreams of U.S. soldiers come true.     The dream of a soldier is to come home alive, unwounded, to train safe, to love his country, his unit and his family.     However being a soldier is not easy; it is filled with hardship, not just physically or emotionally, but financially.     Operation Once in a Lifetime was created by a soldier to help other soldiers; a soldier knows what a soldier needs and a soldier knows what a soldier does not need.     A soldier does not need to worry about providing beds for his kids, worrying if his electricity will still be on when he goes home or if his house will be foreclosed on when serving his/her country.     A soldier needs a program that will provide free financial assistance regardless of his rank, race, branch of service, physical condition or his deployment status.     A soldier needs a program that can help make a life altering contribution when he is in his/her greatest need; Operation Once in a Lifetime is that program.
