Support for Military Personnel and Families
USSOCOM Care Coalition
In Aug 2005, the USSOCOM Care Coalition was established by the Commander, U.S. Special Operations Command to track, support, and advocate for special operations forces casualties from the Global War on Terror for life. We work with government organizations such as the Department of Defense, Services (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps), military health care (TRICARE), and the Department of Veteran's Affairs to ensure the needs of casualties and families are supported by those charged to provide services for casualties and their families. When a need doesn't fit into a government program the USSOCOM Care Coalition looks to non-government organizations with missions/charters that align with the need of the casualty or their family.
An informational video on this website features surviving families working with the Department of Veterans Affairs. Family members share stories and provide information about the benefits offered by the VA.
