DoD Wounded Service Members and Wounded Service Members Continuing on Active Duty

Ensure Wounded Service Members and Wounded Service Members Continuing on Active Duty utilize CAP as a resource for Workplace Disability Needs Assessments, AT, and employment support services. We establish partnerships and identify emerging needs to support Service Members. 

CAP’s DoDI 6025.22 Assistive Technology (AT) for Wounded, Ill, and Injured Service Members. In accordance with the authority in DoD Directive (DoDD) 5124.02 (Reference (a)), and section 561 of Public Law 109-364 (Reference (b)), similar to sections 794d and 3002 of Title 29, United States Code (Reference (c)), and in accordance with DoD Instruction (DoDI) 1300.24 (Reference (d)), this instruction reissues DoDI 6025.22 (Reference (e)) to:   
a.  Establish policy, define terms, assign responsibilities, and provide procedures for establishing AT programs in coordination with the Military Health System (MHS) and the Recovery Coordination Program.   
b.  Provide support for an interdependent AT system between the DoD Human Resources Activity’s (DoDHRA) Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP), the MHS, and the wounded warrior programs.  The AT system will provide specific guidance to military treatment facilities (MTFs) and transition units to improve the delivery and quality of rehabilitative services to wounded, ill, and injured Service members in the active duty, Reserve, and National Guard components.  


DHA Warrior Care Website - The Defense Health Agency Warrior Care Recovery Coordination Program proactively support wounded, ill, and injured service members in their recovery and reintegration or transition to civilian life.
