Dear Marine Parents,

Each month brings awareness to many causes around the country. During November, there are three causes in particular that are important to the Warrior Support Team. National Family Caregiver’s Month, Warrior Care Month, and Military Family Month. 

Each of these causes brings awareness to the difficulties that Marines, veterans, and their families go through every day. Not just during their time in service, but after they’ve reintegrated into civilian life. We need your help to spread awareness of these causes by sharing this newsletter with others. Whether it’s on social media or email, please share this with others so that we can help as many warriors as possible.

National Family Caregivers Month

November is National Family Caregivers Month, and this year's theme is #BeCareCurious. Family caregivers want the best care for their loved ones, and they should feel encouraged to ask as many questions as possible. They should explore all options as it pertains to their loved one’s health and well-being.

November is Military Family Month

As a result of the difficulties faced by military families, the Armed Services YMCA established Military Family Month in 1996 as a way to honor and recognize the sacrifices military families make, as well as to show our nation's support of, and appreciation for, these sacrifices. Each year since, the President of the United States has signed a proclamation declaring November as Military Family Month.

Warrior Care Month

Established by former Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates in November 2008, the Department of Defense has designated November as Warrior Care Month. The goal of Warrior Care Month is to increase awareness of the resources available to wounded, ill, and injured service members, as well as their family members and caretakers.
