The Defense Department has proclaimed November to be Warrior Care Month. To explore what this means, SpouseBUZZ Talk Radio will host a special broadcast this month featuring some VIP guests. More details in the coming days. For now, the deadline for wounded warriors, ill or injured service members and their families to fill out this survey has been extended.
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2008 - As the Defense Department observes November as Warrior Care Month, officials have extended to Nov. 28 the deadline for wounded, ill and injured servicemembers and their families to respond to a survey designed to assess the programs and services they receive.
Dr. S. Ward Casscells, assistant secretary of defense for health affairs, said the extension resulted from overwhelming response. Two Military Health System questionnaires, one for servicemembers and another for their family members, solicit feedback about satisfaction with the care and services provided. All responses to the online surveys are anonymous to encourage honest assessments, officials said.
