U.S. Army Col. James Rice and Mr. Robert Waples joined us for a Bloggers Roundtable today and spoke briefly about the preliminary results of the AW2 Symposium held in Indianapolis last week. Col. Rice is the Director of the Army Wounded Warrior Program and Mr. Waples, a former soldier, is the spokesperson for the Medical II focus group. We're really looking forward to reengaging with them within the next few weeks as the final results of this years AW2 Symposium are released.
The them for this year "I am AW2" covered topics of medical treatment, family support, transition, continuing on active duty or in the reserve component, and Veteran's Affairs issues.
Check out the AW2 website and blogs at the AW2 Community.
On the call with us was Bryant Jordan from Military.com so watch for his post.
