New online newsletter focuses on wounded warriors, their families 


The deputy under secretay of defense announced Nov. 17 that the first edition of "Square Deal," an e-newsletter published by the Office of Wounded Warrior Care and Transition Policy (WWCTP) is now available online.

Noel Koch said, "The WWCTP mission is to ensure America’s wounded, ill and injured warriors receive the best care our nation can provide, as well as seamless support as they transition back to active duty or on to separation from active service to veteran status.

"The mission encompasses our sisters and brothers in the reserve as well as active components, and their families.

"Success in this vital mission will depend on proactive leadership, responsive policy, effective oversight, interagency collaboration, as well as the compassion and dedicated support of every member of the American family."

"Square Deal" will cover WWCTP activities, provide updates on wounded warrior and transition news, and solicit thoughts on how the Defense Department can improve support and services to wounded warriors and their families.

"We appreciate," Koch said, "you taking the time to read our publication and welcome your feedback on how we can make this a useful tool for you as you consider how you can support our wounded, ill, and injured warriors and their families.
