All Marines who qualify for the assistance of a Recovery Care Coordinator (RCC) will develop a Comprehensive Recovery Plan (CRP). This plan is a roadmap for recovery – identifying goals and the steps necessary to reach those goals. These steps are the basis for the Marine’s daily activities while assigned to a Wounded Warrior Regiment element or in their personal efforts while remaining with their parent unit.
Marines may be assigned to the WWR in several ways: through the WWR operations center’s daily monitoring of personnel casualty reports, a medical officer’s recommendation, or a unit commander’s recommendation. The WWR staff will assist Marines who are receiving support for their recovery through four specific lines of operation (LOO): mind, body, spirit and family. They will also provide medical advocacy and administrative support.
The goal of the recovery process is to establish a meaningful life path, reinforced by mental, moral, and physical strength and courage; and achievable goals for the future that afford quality of life and financial stability.
The Mind LOO aims to develop Marines who possess increased sharpness of the mind; memory, focus, concentration, understanding, and an increased ability to learn and comprehend. These are achieved through:
The Body LOO aims to develop Marines who possess a foundation for health, physical fitness, and longevity in life as a productive and contributing member of society. The following efforts are used:
The Spirit LOO aims to develop Marines who are content with life, have balance and control, positive relationships, a sense of purpose and meaning to life, acceptance and growth with challenges in life, and experiencing a connection with a power greater than oneself. The WWR works through:
The Family LOO seeks to establish a family that is committed and in a safe and appreciative environment, filled with spiritual well-being, resilient coping skills, shared responsibilities, redefined roles and open communication. These goals are approached through:
