Office of Warrior Care Policy
The mission of the Office of Warrior Care Policy is to proactively support wounded, ill, and injured Service members in their recovery and reintegration or transition to civilian life.
The office was established in November 2008 under the Undersecretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness (USD P&R) within the U.S. Department of Defense. Responsibilities of the office include Recovery Care Coordination and Transition Policy.
The Recovery Coordination Program includes resources and programs such as non-medical care coordination, the Operation Warfighter internship program, the Warrior Athletic Reconditioning Program, and the National Resource Directory. Transition Policy includes oversight of the Integrated Disability Evaluation System.
The Office of Warrior Care Policy also supports the resources and programs offered by each Military Service’s wounded warrior program, and provides assistance and guidance to these programs when necessary.

- The Warrior Care logo is designed to embody the mission, vision, and values of the Office of Warrior Care. Collectively, the silhouettes represent the spectrum of demographics that Warrior Care serves – male and female service members who are wounded, ill, and injured, in uniform and in civilian attire, their family members and their caregivers – throughout the continuum of care as the Service members recover, reintegrate into military or civilian life, and triumph.
- The hands depict the Department of Defense’s commitment to providing holistic care to support our Nation’s wounded, ill and injured Service members, as well as their caregivers, and their families. The three stars in the base of the hands represent the office’s three star equivalent Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense and the office’s tagline of “Recover, Reintegrate, and Triumph” borders the logo, as a reminder of the important vision statement to which the office has committed.
- The logo incorporates our Nation’s patriotic colors as well as shades of purple to convey the office’s dedication to all branches of service
