Myth 2: My life is over
Every wounded, ill or injured Soldier that enters a WTU has unique challenges to overcome, but they are not alone. Each Soldier has a dedicated team made up of a nurse case manager, primary care manager and squad leader, helping to guide them through their recovery. There are also a number of adaptive reconditioning activities Soldiers can get involved in such as: healing arts, adaptive sports such as wheelchair basketball, archery and shooting, music and more. These activities help Soldiers adjust to their ‘new normal’.
