Navy Wounded Warrior is solely responsible for coordinating the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, as well as providing resources and support to their families and caregivers. Navy Wounded Warrior provides individually-tailored assistance designed to optimize the success of the wounded warriors' recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration activities.
Navy Wounded Warrior recognizes that fitness and teamwork are a way of life in the military. Serious illness or injury can profoundly impact that way of life, and can sometimes confine a service member to a hospital bed or significantly alter their physical capabilities. Through the Navy Wounded Warrior’s Adaptive Sports & Recreation program, Sailors and Coast Guardsmen are introduced to adaptive sports as an opportunity to build strength and endurance. It also helps with building self-esteem, lowering stress levels, and possibly preventing secondary medical conditions from developing.
Through the Navy Wounded Warrior’s Adaptive Sports & Recreation program, our wounded warriors can choose to participate in local and regional events, as well as large scale events, such as the Team Navy Intro Camps. Athletes that demonstrate a team mentality and exceptional talent may be invited to compete as part of Team Navy during the annual Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games. Navy Wounded Warrior’s Team Navy is proud participant of the DoD Warrior Games!
