The United States Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment provides and enables assistance to wounded, ill and injured Marines, sailors attached to or in support of Marine units, and their family members in order to assist them as they return to duty or transition to civilian life. The Regimental headquarters element, located in Quantico, Va., commands the operations of two Wounded Warrior Battalions located at Camp Pendleton, Calif., and Camp Lejeune, N.C., and multiple detachments in locations around the globe.
District Injured Service Coordinators (DISCs) are active duty Marines who are part of the USMC Wounded Warrior Regiment, and are located in nearly 40 locations throughout the country to help support recently retired Marines and Navy Corpsmen dealing with issues related to their military service and transition to the civilian life. They conduct face-to-face visits and telephone outreach to Wounded, Ill and Injured (WII) Marines and their families who are recovering within their assigned region. The DISCs assist WII Marines who are experiencing transition challenges, convalescing at home and those who may be away from a local base or station’s resources. The DISCs assist Marines with psychological health, legal, benefits, employment, housing, and many other matters.
