Wounded, Ill & Injured Marines

Wounded, Ill and Injured Marines

Whether serving in combat operations or in training, individual Marines can incur a wound, injury, or illness that may have a long-term impact on their lives and ability to continue their career. Wounded, ill or injured (WII) Marines can return to full and unrestricted duty or transition to civilian life. Transitioning Marines should refer to the Integrated Disability Evaluation System process that will determine their fitness for continued military service.

If you have any questions, please contact the Sergeant Merlin German Wounded Warrior Call Center 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 1-877-487-6299.

Assignment to the Wounded Warrior Regiment

In certain circumstances, assignment to the Wounded Warrior Regiment may be appropriate and necessary to ensure the Marine’s successful transition through the phases of recovery. Standard considerations for assignment may include, but are not exclusive to the following:

  • The Marine’s injury will require more than 90 days of medical treatment or rehabilitation.
  • The parent command cannot support transportation requirements to the Medical Treatment Facility.
  • The Marine cannot serve a function in the parent command due to his/her injuries or illness.
  • The Marine has three or more medical appointments per week.
