Returning Warrior Workshop

The Returning Warrior Workshop (RWW) is available to reserve component (RC) and active component (AC) Sailors who served as individual augmentees. Here, they learn how to overcome the battles they face back home -- the struggles that come from the dramatic transition from combat life to civilian life.

Qualifying participants include RC and AC Sailors who served as an IA and their spouse, or if unmarried, significant other or close family member.

Workshops are comprised of group presentations, small group breakout sessions, vendor informational sessions and one-on-one counseling in a conference-style setting. Facilitators are carefully selected and trained to help the participants through potentially sensitive and emotional discussions. They include senior officer and enlisted personnel in the nurse corps, medical and social work fields, and chaplains.

View the FY 2014 RWW Schedule to reserve your spot for this valuable workshop for you and your guest. Notice for AC Sailors: If your command is unable to fund your transportation to a scheduled RWW, contact USFF IA Support and provide the requested information.
