In 2008, the Secretary of Defense designated November as Warrior Care Month in order to inform members of the military and their families and communities about the programs and initiatives currently being provided through the Warrior Care system and the forthcoming improvements. Now, five years later, Warrior Care Month is bigger than ever. Throughout the month of November, The Office of Warrior Care and all of the Service’s wounded warrior regiments will be highlighting various wounded warrior programs, activities, stories of recovery, and personal triumphs. Warrior Care Month is not only about what is being done for our Nation’s wounded, ill and injured Service members, but also about what they do for us, how they continually give back to our communities, their families, and this great Nation that they have sacrificed so much to protect.
