The mission of the Office of Warrior Care Policy (WCP) is to proactively support wounded, ill, and injured service members in their recovery and reintegration or transition to civilian life.

On November 5, 2008, then Secretary of Defense Robert F. Gates established November as Warrior Care Month. He said Warrior Care Month is a, “DOD-wide effort aimed at increasing awareness of programs and resources available to wounded, ill, and injured service members, their families, and those who care about them.”

This month, the Military Health System highlights programs, services and resources available to wounded, ill and injured service members, their families and caregivers.
