Assignment to the Wounded Warrior Regiment

  • 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.
