The Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) is the official U.S. Army program that assists and advocates for severely wounded, ill and injured Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families, wherever they are located, regardless of military status.
Soldiers who qualify for AW2 are assigned to the program as soon as possible after arriving at the Warrior Transition Unit. AW2 supports these Soldiers and their Families throughout their recovery and transition, even into Veteran status. This program, through the local support of AW2 Advocates, strives to foster the Soldier's independence.
Each AW2 Soldier is assigned an AW2 Advocate who provides personalized local support to the Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families. AW2 Advocates are located at Military Treatment Facilities, VA Polytrauma Centers, VA facilities and most Army installations.
AW2 supports the most severely wounded Soldiers and Veterans who suffer from injuries or illness incurred in the line of duty after September 10, 2001, in support of Overseas Contingency Operations since 9/11. These Soldiers and Veterans must receive or expect to receive an Army Physical Disability Evaluation System rating of 30% or greater in one or more specific categories, such as:
• Blindness/Loss of Vision
• Deafness/Hearing Loss
• Fatal/Incurable Disease
• Loss of Limb
• Permanent Disfigurement
• Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
• Severe Burns
• Spinal Cord Injury/Paralysis
• Traumatic Brain Injury
• Any other condition requiring extensive hospitalizations or multiple surgeries
AW2 also supports Soldiers who receive an Army Physical Disability Evaluation System combined rating of 50% or greater for conditions that are the result of combat or are combat-related.
Soldiers and Veterans who meet the above eligibility requirements and are not currently enrolled in AW2 should contact the AW2 Call Center for assistance.
