November is Warrior Care Month. On November 5, 2008, then Secretary of Defense Robert F. Gates established the month of November as Warrior Care Month. According to Secretary Gates this 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.”
Of course, caring for our brave warriors is a year-round effort. But, November is designated as a month to increase awareness of programs and resources. This year’s theme is “Show of Strength.”
Warrior Care Month
To say caring for those who care for us on the battlefield, in the special operations rooms, behind their desks, overseas, domestically, post-discharge, etc. is extremely important is an understatement. It is paramount that we care for those who serve, have served, and their families.
We as a nation have made strides to improve the quality of care that our warriors receive. Warrior Care Month is one example. An article by Army Command Sgt. Maj. Robert Luciano, Senior Enlisted Advisor of the Defense Health Agency describes serving as a former combat medic to now contributing behind the scenes for the Defense Health Agency. He notes policies and procedures that have been established across the DoD. He notes,
“We no longer paint our service members’ psychological health conditions with a broad brush, using generic terms like ‘battle fatigue’ and ‘shell shock.’ Instead, we deliberately study and measure their injuries – both seen and hidden – ensuring our policies, programs, and resources meet their needs.”
