Your Transition

The WWR transition section facilitates the successful transition of all recovering service members (RSMs) and families or caregivers supported by WWR transition personnel through an integrated transition program that provides the necessary tools, experiences, and opportunities associated with each RSM's transition goals. WWR transition personnel at regiment and battalions continually adapt to meet RSMs' and families' transition and employment needs. Potential transition goals include: education, employment, vocational training, entrepreneurship, and return to full duty/expanded permanent limited duty.

The Marine Corps care model is unique in that its approach is to ensure recovering Marines return to their units as quickly as their medical conditions will allow. To support our active duty WII Marines that remain with or have returned to their parent command, each Wounded Warrior Battalion (WWBn) has a contact center. Contact center representatives for west and east monitor Marines’ recoveries within their area of responsibility (AOR) and provide information on programs and/or resources.

The Sergeant Merlin German Wounded Warrior Call Center (WWCC) provides 24/7 assistance to active duty, reserve, and veteran WII Marines and their families. Call center staff conduct scheduled outreach calls to WII Marines and also receive calls from Marines and families/caregivers requesting support. DISCs and WWCC representatives have access to all the WWR resources and are able to provide assistance on a wide variety of issues, including
