Warrior Care Month
Established by former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates in November 2008, the Department of Defense has designated November as Warrior Care Month. The goal of Warrior Care Month is to increase awareness of the resources available to wounded, ill, and injured service members, as well as their family members and caretakers.
Warrior Care is a mission that never ends. Professionals and Warrior Care Programs proactively support wounded, ill, and injured service members during their recovery and rehabilitation on a daily basis.
To mark Warrior Care Month, numerous events will be held throughout the month at joint service adaptive sports camps, healing arts events, internship fairs, as well as other events and activities designed to support recovering service members throughout the country.
