Overview

US flag and farmThe U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2)is the official Army  program that serves severely wounded, injured, and ill Soldiers and their Families, wherever they are located, while building their path to independence. AW2 supports the most severely wounded Soldiers from the Global War on Terrorism who have, or are expected to receive, an Army disability rating of 30% or greater in one or more specific categories or a combined rating of 50% or greater for conditions that are the result of combat or are combat related. AW2 is one element of the Army’s focus on caring for wounded Soldiers and their Families. AW2 Soldiers and Families are assigned an AW2 Advocate and to a Warrior Transition Unit (WTU) to focus on healing. The AW2 Advocate supports the WTU “triad of care” team consisting of a primary care physician, nurse case manager, and a military squad leader. AW2 assists and advocates for more than 17,000 severely wounded Soldiers and their Families. More than 200 AW2 Advocates are located throughout the country where there are large concentrations of AW2 Soldiers at VA Polytrauma Centers, VA facilities, Military Treatment Facilities, and most military installations.

AW2 Advocates Provide:

         Personalized, local support while building their path to independence, regardless of location or military status

    Assistance with day-to-day issues in recovery, as well as longer-term decisions, such as choosing to remain in the

      Army or to medically retire

     Support throughout the entire six-phase Wounded Warrior Lifecycle
