About the event
The Air Force Wounded Warrior (AFW2) Program works together with the Air Force Survivor Assistance Program, Airman & Family Readiness Centers and the Air Force Medical Service to provide concentrated non-medical care and support for seriously or very seriously wounded, ill and injured Airmen, Guardians, Caregivers and their families as they recover and transition back to duty or into civilian life. The Air Force defines a wounded warrior as “any Airman or Guardian who is seriously wounded, ill, or injured that may require a Medical Evaluation Board/Physical Evaluation Board to determine fitness for duty.”
More than 8,400 wounded warriors their families and or caregivers are being supported by the AFW2 Program. The number continues to grow as more wounded warriors are identified. The AFW2 Program is functionally aligned under the Air Force Warrior Care Division and operationally managed by the Air Force Personnel Center.
We will provide well-coordinated & personalized support to wounded, ill or injured Total Force recovering service members (RSM) and their Caregivers and families. The program will advocate for the RSM to ensure accessibility and minimize delays and gaps in medical and non-medical service. We will use a 7 Phase Continuum of Care that runs from the initial identification through recovery and rehabilitation to reintegration back into active duty or transition to retirement or separation. The Continuum of Care allows us to anticipate needs of the RSM and to connect them with resources to assist them as needed. The goal is to provide a refined, simplified transition back to duty or into civilian life, ensuring RSMs are well-equipped to manage challenges because of their wounds, injuries or illnesses.
