Families and Caregivers: Essential element in athletes’ recovery and rehabilitation

The 2017 Department of Defense Warrior Games have been an opportunity for families and caregivers of wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans to share common experiences and celebrate the accomplishments of their service members and families in overcoming adversity and thriving.

Thirty-nine athletes competed June 30 to July 8 on behalf of Team Navy in the Warrior Games – a Paralympic-style competition in Chicago for wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans.

Team Navy is comprised of athletes from Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor, the Navy’s sole organization for coordinating the non-medical care of seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors and Coast Guard members, providing resources and support to their families.
