Audio: US Army Bloggers Roundtable: Warrior Care Month
Audio by William Selby
Warrior Care Month, initiated in 2008, is observed by the military services each November. This is a time to reaffirm a commitment to the care and support for wounded, ill or injured service members and their families. Since 2007, nearly half (47 percent) of the 57,000 soldiers supported by the Army's Warrior Care and Transition Program have returned to duty, contributing to a ready and resilient force. A soldier, spouse and cadre member from the Army's Warrior Transition Brigade at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center will be available to discuss the WTU experience.
