tabEligibility & Goals 
Simulated sniper fire wounds Airman during training exerciseAn Air Force Wounded Warrior is any seriously or very seriously wounded, ill or injured Airman identified on a casualty report, or recommended by the medical community, as having highly complex medical conditions identified by the medical community. Also included are Airmen who have been referred to the Integrated Disability Evaluation System (IDES) for post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and/or other mental health conditions, or who have been retained for more than six months on medical Title 10 orders, or returned to Title 10 orders, for medical conditions related to deployment.

Goals
There is no difference in care provided for any Total Force Member -- active, Guard, or Reserve. We will expedite the medical evaluation process if a Wounded Warrior chooses to separate from active duty.

We will ensure extraordinary care, service and assistance before and after Wounded Warriors separate or retire. Strong emphasis is placed on ensuring wounded Airmen receive professional, individualized guidance and support to help them successfully navigate their way through the complex process of transitioning out of the Air Force and returning to civilian life.

tabThank You 
"I had the distinct privilege of serving 36-plus years in the U.S. Air Force/U.S. Air Force Reserves. My goal of serving 40 years was cut short when I had a stroke on active duty in July 2011. For the first year, I can clearly say the Air Force and U.S. Central Command did an outstanding job in supporting my rehabilitation. In August 2012, I was released from [medical orders] and left virtually alone in trying to retire with disability. There was clearly no one office to advocate and support my disability retirement.

"Out of the blue I was contacted by the AF Wounded Warrior program's Thomas Sansone and Renetta Jones who have done a tremendous job in getting my retirement orders processed and streamlining all offices (AFPC, ARPC, DFAS) to ensure I received all earned pay and entitlements. Most recently, Tom and Renetta have had to jump hurdles to close the loop to make sure I receive Concurrent Retirement and Disability Pay.

"In total, I have spoken via phone or communicated via e-mail with Tom and Renetta several dozen times. Each time I have found Tom and Renetta to be fully engaged and aware of the latest actions and which office was doing what to resolve my issues. Every step along the way I found Tom and Renetta to be extremely helpful, attentive and professional. I can unequivocally say that Tom and Renetta are crucial in advocating and resolving wounded warrior problems, and I am personally most appreciative of their superior support in my behalf!"
