Warrior Care – A Virtual Show of Strength

The Department of Defense has no higher priority than caring for the wounded, ill, and injured service members who have sacrificed so much. Wounded warriors exhibit strength and resilience – physically, mentally, and spiritually – in challenging circumstances. The DOD offers support and recovery programs to help wounded service members navigate their conditions, return to service, or reintegrate into civilian life.

Warrior Care Month

The Department of Defense has no higher priority than caring for wounded, ill, and injured service members. November is Warrior Care Month, a chance to honor the wounded warriors who exhibit so much strength and resilience - physically, mentally, and spiritually - everyday.
