For a video of Secretary of Defense Robert Gates talking about November designated as Warrior Care month,
Citing Warrior Care as a top priority and a solemn obligation, Secretary
Gates designated November 2008 as "Warrior Care Month" to communicate
the Department of Defense's commitment to quality care for our
Servicemembers and their families. Warrior Care Month is aimed at
increasing awareness of programs and resources available to wounded,
ill, and injured Servicemembers, their families, and those who care
