Twelve Hugs A Day
Tech. Sgt. Roann Leatz lets the AFW2 staff know how she feels about attending events with us. The hug is part of a therapeutic alliance we have with our wounded warriors that releases oxtocin, a biological chemical that elevates mood and helps in the recovery process. The program lives by the idea that 12 hugs a day leads to a more successful recovery. The Air Force Wounded Warrior Program (AFW2) is celebrating Warrior Care Month during the 2018 NE Central Warrior CARE Event at Joint Base Andrews, MD, and the National Harbor. The annual recognition showcases the military services programs for caring for wounded,ill, and injured service men and women and their families. (U.S. Air Force Photo by Shawn Sprayberry).
