Navy Wounded Warrior Safe Harbor serves as a primary source of information about the support provided seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors, Coast Guardsmen, and their families.

Navy Wounded Warrior - Safe Harbor


Navy Safe Harbor is the Navy and Coast Guard's wounded warrior support program. It provides non-medical support -- such as addressing personnel concerns, arranging child care, and securing employment opportunities -- for nearly 1,600 Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, as well as their families. Enrollment in the program is available to service members wounded in combat, as well as to those diagnosed with a serious illness or injured in shipboard, training, and liberty accidents. Enrollment lasts a lifetime. Navy Safe Harbor's goal is to return Sailors and Coast Guardsmen to duty. But, when that's not possible, the program works to successfully reintegrate them back into their communities.

Success is often defined by wins and losses. By life-changing professional achievements or things that give people acclaim in their community. However, the most important form of success is often overlooked - personal fulfillment. When people face life-threatening injuries or illnesses, self-doubt, fear, depression and frustration can often overwhelm even the strongest personalities. These facts are no different when it comes to injured and ill Sailors. However, the Navy's wounded warrior program, Safe Harbor, helps Sailors overcome these challenges.

"It takes an extra bit of dedication to do this job. I know it's rough. It's rough on you, rough on your families, but it's never been more necessary at any time in our history than it is right now. Without someone willing to put in the long hours, willing to suffer the frustrations, willing to risk the dangers, our country wouldn't be sure of continued peace and freedom. There's no greater gift that you can give to your family, your community, or your country than the protection that you afford all of them by this job that you're doing. " --President Ronald W. Reagan, 20AUG1981
