By COL Jim Rice, AW2 Director
Welcome to our new AW2 Blog hosted by ArmyLive. In addition to our new blog we also launched a redesigned Web site today at http://www.AW2.army.mil as part of the our realignment under the Warrior Transition Command (WTC). The new Web site and blog will provide robust information and updates on how the AW2 Program is fulfilling its mission of providing personalized support to severely wounded, injured and ill Soldiers, Veterans, and their Families.
Whether you are a Soldier recovering at Walter Reed, a medically retired Veteran living in Montana, or simply a citizen who is interested in wounded warrior care, we hope that all members of the AW2 community will find the new resources on our Web site useful and share their experiences on the AW2 Blog.
One of the Web site’s many new features is an expanded Career and Education section to better assist AW2 Soldiers, Veterans, and Families in their transition to the civilian workforce. In the coming weeks, AW2 will feature a wounded warrior employment series to highlight best practices from AW2 Career Coordinators and real-world experiences from AW2 Soldiers and Veterans.
The AW2 Blog uses a powerful blogging platform provided by ArmyLive and will continue to voice a variety of perspectives from inside AW2 on a regular basis and allow for interactive feedback in the form of comments. I hope you will take the time to explore the features enabled here that allow you to discover popular posts, access other wounded warrior care and Army Web sites, and subscribe to the AW2 Blog through a number of popular web-based RSS readers.
The most powerful and informative entries on the AW2 Blog are the stories that other AW2 Soldiers, Veterans, and Family members have written. I strongly encourage you to share your experiences by writing a blog entry for the AW2 Blog by contacting AW2 Stratcom at AW2Stratcomm@conus.army.mil.
