  • Wounded Warrior: The only definition that matters

    In AFW2, a Wounded Warrior is defined as someone who is very serious or seriously wounded, ill or injured. They have complex medical issues that keep them from performing one or more tasks in the military, many facing medical retirement following years of treatment. They are not all combat-wounded or injured, many have developed life-changing illnesses or have been injured in off-duty accidents. From the young lady who crashed her motorcycle into a tree and lost her leg to the young man who jumped into a lake, fracturing his neck and damaging his spinal cord, the issues that bring Airmen into this program are varied.

I’ve had more flashbacks and panic attacks that pulled me from school early. My grades are sinking. I'm becoming more
  • Invisible wounds

    I’m an ambassador for the Air Force Wounded Warrior Program. As an ambassador, I’m an advocate for the program and I work in my local area to plan events which bring our wounded together.
  • #BeThere before the call

    When the phone rings in the middle of the night, it’s like an alarm going off in your brain. No one calls at one in the morning to say they were “just thinking of you.”I received one of those calls 13 years ago and woke to my mom telling me my dad had died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
