Warrior Care Month - Healing the Mind, Body, and Spirit: Unlocking Unlimited Potential
Warrior Care Month is observed during November. While we care for Soldiers every day, observing Warrior Care Month allows us to set aside one month each year to highlight the many ways the Army keeps Soldiers and their families healthy and safe.
Most people think of the combat injured when they hear the term warrior care. Clearly, there is no greater or higher calling than helping these men and women heal. Warrior care is also prevention of illnesses and accidents having the best protective gear maintaining a strong medical readiness posture, investing in research, and knowing the best trained medics in the world are standing shoulder-to-shoulder with Soldiers on the battlefield.
Across the Army during November, Army Warrior Transition Unit (WTUs) leaders will host open houses, media days, adaptive sports events, professional development sessions, and celebrate openings of Warrior Transition Complexes. Local communities and organizations will honor Soldiers for their service and sacrifice throughout the month, especially on Veterans Day and Thanksgiving. Wounded, ill and injured Soldiers from WTUs will engage local community groups, sharing their personal experiences from health care to training, education and employment.
Across the Army, leaders and WTU Soldiers will engage with men and women who don't wear the uniform, but who support and care for our Soldiers and their families - the Veterans Administration, Congress, Veteran and military organizations, non-profits, corporate America, local communities and individual citizens. Warrior Care Month is a time to recognize these people who make up the sea of goodwill in the United States and acknowledge their contributions to warrior care.
Warrior Care Month 2011 is being executed locally in Army communities - everywhere. Check your local installation and community newspapers to learn about upcoming events.
