When a service member is injured on the battlefield a progression of events is quickly set in motion. Certainly there are variations but initially in the field, their uniforms are cut off of them to check for wounds that may not be immediately apparent and they are prepared for a medevac. They are taken to a hospital and usually within 24 hours they are flown to Germany and further treated and stabilized at Landstuhl Army Hospital where they are then flown to the United States as quickly as possible. Depending on their injuries, space availability etc, they are normally sent to one of three major Military Medical Centers: Walter Reed/Bethesda in Maryland, San Antonio Military Medical Center in Texas and Balboa Military Medical Center in Southern California. Sometimes in less than 72 hours, they have been injured and are now in a hospital in the US. All of the people they trust the most are gone. All of their belongings are either back in country or stored at their stateside duty station. Their hometown might be in Iowa. Most are lucky to have a spouse or one parent be able to come stay with them at the hospital.

Initially, the Connected Warrior Foundation began by providing computer tablets to combat wounded Iraq and Afghanistan veterans.These tablets enable warriors to stay connected via email and social networking with those far away. They also help manage their recovery through the use of apps, educational and scheduling capabilities and give them the opportunity to simply read a book, play a video game or watch a movie during the many hours waiting in doctor’s offices and during physical rehabilitation. Soon, it became apparent that these tablets were equally beneficial to the recovery of those already through the hospital system. The program was expanded to include warriors recovering from “invisible wounds” such as PTSD and TBI. Since the spring of 2011 over 2,000 tablets have been given to servicemen and women throughout the country. It continues to be a very successful program today.

Understanding the importance of warriors interacting with each other and those in the community, the Connected Warrior Foundation has expanded its’ engagement and outreach programs. Several events are held throughout the year with warriors to encourage this interaction with each other. All are done with the knowledge that the newer warriors share common problems with those who are further along and can gain from their experience.
