Wounded, Ill and Injured

A continuum of care for wounded, ill and injured service members

Recovering from a battlefield injury, training accident or even a long illness can be a daunting prospect for service members and their loved ones. The USO of NC supports service members and their families who are recovering and receiving treatment in several ways.

The USO of NC operates a satellite center at the Warrior Transition Battalion at Fort Bragg, offering a place where warriors who are recovering from injuries can come together with other; enjoy gaming, movies, snacks and camaraderie. We also offer dinners throughout the week and special activity nights and holiday events. This satellite center plays a critical role in the overall recovery of our wounded, ill and injured, and may often be the service member’s first step in socialization after an incident.

Throughout the state, the USO of NC supports installation and community programs, such as the Valor Games. The programs we support are designed to promote recreational therapy and continual care throughout recovery and community reintegration.

For warriors struggling with unseen wounds, the USO of NC offers Warrior Reset, a resiliency program designed to bring together servicemen and women to address issues around Post Traumatic Stress and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Our collaborative provider network NCServes provides opportunities for emergency 24/7/365 support.

Caregivers Seminars The USO of NC collaborates with the national USO in bringing caregiver seminars to North Carolina. Caregivers Seminars provide caregivers (husbands, wives, parents, hospital staff and other family members supporting wounded, ill and injured troops) practical advice and valuable information about available resources. Sessions address such topics as post-traumatic stress disorder, caregiver boundaries and intimacy, compassion fatigue, parenting, childhood grief and caregiver resiliency. Caregivers Seminars provide a forum to speak candidly about the issues they face while seeking advice from subject-matter experts and fellow caregivers.

Our Spouse Reset program also provides vital links to information, programming and community support for the healing families.
