The U.S. Marine Corps approaches each individual Marine and Sailor's recovery as a relationship, not a process, and encourages healing in all aspects of life. The Wounded Warrior Regiment (WWR) provides leadership and guidance related to the support and care of combat and non-combat wounded, ill, and injured Marines, Sailors attached to Marine units, and their family members, to maximize their recovery as they return to duty or transition to civilian life. To help recovering service members (RSMs) address the various challenges of their wound, illness or injury, the WWR focuses on four elements: the mind, body, spirit and family.
Our RSMs are introduced to adaptive sports and reconditioning activities through the Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program (WAR-P)—a major component of the recovery process. Through the WAR-P, Marines can choose to participate in daily activities, unit-level competitions and large-scale events, such as the Marine Corps Trials, Invictus Games, and DoD Warrior Games. Team Marine Corps’ motto is Etiam in Pugna, which translates to ‘still in the fight.’ Recovery is a lifelong journey and WWR acknowledges and supports the RSMs facing that challenge every day.
