Team Marine Corps
mc

The Wounded Warrior Regiment (WWR) is the official command charged by the Commandant of the Marine Corps to provide leadership for and facilitate the integration of non-medical and medical care to combat and non-combat wounded, ill and injured Marines, sailors attached to Marine units and their family members in order to maximize their recovery as they return to duty or transition to civilian life. The WWR approaches each individual Marine’s recovery as a relationship, not a process, and encourages healing in all aspects of life. To help Marines focus on the varying means through which they will overcome the challenges of their wound, illness or injury, the WWR developed four separate lines of operation: mind, body, spirit and family.

Marines are introduced to adaptive sports and reconditioning activities as part of the recovery and reintegration process. Marines can choose to participate in unit level competitions and then the Marine Corps Trials. Participants include athletes with upper-body, lower-body and spinal cord injuries; amputations; serious illnesses; traumatic brain injuries (TBI); visual impairment and post-traumatic stress disorder. Athletes who compete in the Marine Corps Trials work with expert coaches, sports trainers and nutritionists to prepare for the competitions. This rigorous training enhances the recovery of individual Marines, regardless of whether they ultimately qualify for the Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games.

The Warrior Games touch on all four lines of operation: improving self-worth and mental stability through finding a new normal, strengthening the body through physical activity, reigniting the spark that provides purpose and pride and involving the family which encourages and nurtures the recovery process of each Marine. Athletes possessing professionalism, team spirit and the best qualifying times and/or scores are selected to compete on Team Marine Corps in the DoD Warrior Games. The 2016 DoD Warrior Games (15-21 June 2016) feature eight sporting events with approximately 250 athletes representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force, U.S. Special Operations Command and United Kingdom Armed Forces.
