November is Warrior Care Month

November is Warrior Care Month. It was established in 2008 “to increase awareness of programs and resources available to wounded, ill, and injured service members, their families, and those who care for them.” The Department of Defense was tasked to “continue to make it easier for our troops and their families to take advantage of all the assistance now available to them.”

Navy Wounded Warrior’s motto is Numquam Navigare Solus, Never to Sail Alone. The Navy lives its values of honor, courage and commitment when caring for wounded, ill and injured service members and their families and caregivers.

About Navy Wounded Warrior

Navy Wounded Warrior is the Navy's sole provider of non-medical care for Sailors and Coast Guardsmen and their families. Maintaining the gold standard for non-medical care, it offers resources for education and employment initiatives, adaptive-sports programs and family and caregiver tools, as well as other offerings that promote healing and opportunities for success, both within and beyond military service.

Programs not only assist those wounded in combat, but also Sailors and Coastguardsmen battling serious illnesses, including mental illness, or those who are injured in accidents, on a ship, in training, or on liberty. Wounds can be visible and invisible. The fastest growing categories for referrals to Navy Wounded Warrior are for serious illnesses, such as cancer and mental-health conditions.

We're Here to Help

Service members can self-refer to Navy Wounded Warrior. Family members are often the best advocates and can directly refer their Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, too. Contact the Navy Wounded Warrior call center at 855-NAVY WWP (855-628-9997) or send an email to navywoundedwarrior.fct@navy.mil to get started.
