Col. Jim Rice, director of the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2), and Roberta Berry, career coordinator for AW2, discussed the Army’s efforts to support wounded warriors through AW2′s Career and Education programs during a roundtable conversation with bloggers and journalists.
“Who better to put in those positions than soldiers who have worn the uniform,” Rice asked. He emphasized the point by asking, “Who understands the organization, who understands the requirements of the organization — who better than these wounded warriors to fill those roles?”
In recognition of Disability Employment Awareness Month, AW2 discussed the important mission of helping soldiers, veterans and their Families to remain in uniform or transition to civilian jobs in both private and public sectors.
