In Case You Missed It: January 1, 2020 marked 59 years since the Navy SEAL teams ONE and TWO were officially established.

Happy birthday, and thank you to all past and current Navy SEALs!

#NavyWoundedWarior #NavySEALs

#OTD in 1962, The Navy SEAL teams were established, beginning with Teams ONE and TWO.

In response to President John F. Kennedy’s desire for the services to develop unconventional warfare, the U.S. Navy established the SEALs (Sea, Air, Land.) Their mission at the time was to conduct counter guerilla warfare and clandestine operations in riverine and maritime environments. The SEAL teams were formed with personnel from Underwater Demolition Teams (UDT) also known as, "Frogmen."

🎉Happy Birthday, SEALs!

Toady is International Day of People With Disabilities. This year’s theme, “Not all Disabilities are Visible,” focuses on spreading awareness and understanding of disabilities that are not immediately apparent, such as mental illness, chronic pain or fatigue, sight or hearing impairments, diabetes, brain injuries, neurological disorders, learning differences, and cognitive dysfunctions, among others.

These are just some examples of the millions of people currently living with a disability that is not immediately apparent, and a reminder of the importance of removing barriers for all people living with disability, both visible and invisible.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, isolation, disconnect, disrupted routines, and diminished services have greatly impacted the lives and mental well-being of people with disabilities right around the world. Spreading awareness of invisible disabilities, as well as these potentially detrimental— and not always immediately apparent— impacts to mental health, is crucial as the world continues to fight against the virus, and for inclusion for people living with disability.

Adaptive athletics is one of the many areas of recovery offered through Navy Wounded Warrior.

Fitness and teamwork are a way of life in the military. Adaptive athletics are sports that have been modified to meet the abilities of injured or ill individuals. They help wounded warriors build strength and endurance, while also drawing inspiration from their teammates.

All wounded warriors enrolled in Navy Wounded Warrior are encouraged to include adaptive athletics in their recovery plans to build strength and endurance. Sports also helps build self-esteem, lowers stress levels and prevents secondary medical conditions from developing.

Did you know? Employment and education assistance is a core component of Navy Wounded Warrior.

Navy Wounded Warrior headquarters is home to the Education, Employment and Internship (E2I) program. It connects enrollees and their caregivers to a host of education resources and career counseling services, from assisting with job applications, to identifying vocational training opportunities, to sharing direct employer contacts. In addition, E2I representatives serve as national champions for the hiring of disabled veterans, sharing best practices and discussing the benefits of hiring wounded warriors with potential employers.

I am a 100% disabled vet who is a resident of Spain. Am I allowed access to the Navy Exchange in Naples. I have a DOD ID card that I used in the US. Spain does not allow retired or disabled access in Rota. Thanks in advance.
Where can i find more information about the program? I was recently told there are 3 different Categories. Can you please break down the difference in the categories and what benefits or treatments are available at each level?
It was just over 15 years ago that I returned from deployment only to be diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It was certainly a gut punch as we were also expecting our twin boys around the same time. I was able to remain active duty and my health remained stable until 2016. My motor skills, coordination, and a host of other disease related issues began to decline. I credit my wife - assuming the daunting role of caregiver - for the strength and persistence I needed to carry on. I find myself transitioned out of the military, and each and every day realize how lucky I am to have her in my life. She has been there for me every "step" of the way, supporting me, and adapting to life as it comes. She didn't - we didn't - ask for this, but I couldn't ask for a more compassionate and patient caregiver. Today I celebrate #MilitarySpouseAppreciationDay. Please take a moment to recognize yours, their sacrifices, and applaud their role in your life. They certainly deserve it.
Shout out to my wife Jill. She’s a nurse by trade but decided to be a stay at home mom to raise our two sons while i go on deployments. She kept our family intact through a prayerful life and by being an example to all of us. She kept me at bay when i was not doing well with my mental health. Thank you for your love, faith, support and dedication to our family. Forever grateful. #MilitarySpouseAppreciationDay -HMC Valenzuela with his wife Jill.

Navy Wounded Warrior Adaptive Sports gives sailors and coastguardsmen an opportunity to develop lasting friendships while healing from combat related and other injuries. The Zen place for becoming a better you! That’s an awesome feeling of accomplishment & no judgement zone.
https://soundcloud.com/chrisgraysmusic/soldiers-song This song was written in remembrance of everyone who wrote a letter to someone not knowing if they'd ever get it and hoping they wouldn't. The letter I'm talking about is the one you write just in case you don't make it back from patrol/movement/or mission. This song was written from the experiences and the people I met at the Warrior Games and all my friends who served in combat zones. I did not. This is the first military song I've ever written so I hope it is appreciated. I decided to stay up last night and finish it as it's fitting that it get posted on the 4th of July.
