Every Marine has been trained to work as part of a team and never give up, whether the challenge is during wartime or peace. When a Marine is wounded, ill or injured (WII), the Wounded Warrior Regiment (WWR) is here to remind them of that drive and focus through the Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program (WAR-P). WAR-P provides activities and opportunities for WII Marines to train as athletes, while increasing their strength so they can continue with military service or develop healthy habits for life outside the service. This added activity does more than help the Marine maintain their health; it provides a boost to help with the stresses associated with their injury.
During the year, WAR-P holds a variety of sports camps. These camps provide world-class coaching, equipment and once in a lifetime experiences for Marines to learn and excel in a number of sports. In a recent survey conducted by the WWR, two-thirds (66%) of respondents stated that the WAR-P camp assisted in their recovery and almost 90% said that the coaching instruction improved their athletics skills.
