COL Greg Gadson, AW2 Director
Well folks, you asked for it, and AW2 listened—we heard all of you who responded to the Warrior Transition Command (WTC) and AW2 communications surveys, the AW2 Symposium delegates, and even the AW2 kids. Today, I am proud to announce the AW2 Facebook© page. This new capability will let us interact with more AW2 Soldiers, Veterans, and Families more often—and in real time.
Since AW2 was founded in 2004, we’ve taken steps to listen to the wounded Soldiers, Veterans, and Families we serve. We get regular feedback from AW2 Advocates in the field about the issues and concerns that face their AW2 Soldiers and Veterans. We get feedback through the AW2 Symposium and elevate your issues to senior leaders within the Army, DOD, and other federal agencies. Most recently, we received feedback from active duty Soldiers at the COAD/COAR Forum which identified key concerns that will help shape Army policy for wounded warriors who willingly continue to serve. This new social media capability will continue the conversation and allow AW2 to better support the long-term independence of AW2 Soldiers and Veterans.
