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.

Wounded Ill & Injured Referral Worksheet

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 
"My men watch closely how we take care of our fallen's widows and children and how we treat our wounded because they know that any night they could be next. They are counting on us and all of your team to get this right. I thank you for what you and your team do, it is truly critical to our fight."
-- Special Tactics Squadron commander

"I just wanted to say thank you, and that you guys are doing a great job with us Wounded Warriors. The amount of information that has been passed to me cannot be measured. [Caseworker] Candace Escobedo is a wonderful woman. She has called me numerous times checking in on me and asking if there is anything I need, or need help with. Without the AFW2 program I would have never known about Combat-Related Special Compensation. Please, keep up the good work. You guys are all I have left of the wonderful Air Force I was once part of.  Thank you."
