Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 16, 2012

The Military Officers Association of America (MOAA) and the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) have announced their plans to honor wounded heroes and their families at the 2012 Warrior-Family Symposium (WFS), scheduled for Thursday, September 13, 2012, from 8:30 am to 3:30 pm at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC.

Event registration, which is now open, is free to all Active Military/Reserve or Guard and spouses. This year's WFS event will focus on the theme “Saluting Their Sacrifice: A Decade of Challenges and Triumphs for Our Wounded Heroes and Their Families.”

Event co-sponsors MOAA and NDIA plan to provide a forum for expanding on the collective efforts of government and non-government organizations to improve the physical, psychological and overall well-being of wounded warriors and their families.

This event promises to offer a unique and valuable opportunity to hear directly from this nation's wounded warriors and their families.

This year’s WFS program features:

  • First-hand accounts from the nation’s wounded warriors, and their family members/caregivers about their experiences, challenges and triumphs on their road to recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration.
  • Important and relevant transition topics such as medical-disability benefits, care coordination, family-caregiver support and employment-transition services.
  • Special recognition of wounded warriors who have achieved significant milestones in their lives and of organizations that provide examples of effective public-private partnership models for assisting these heroes and families during difficult times of transition.

With the focus on such topics, the WFS will offer all who attend an overall awareness of the Wounded Warriors’ needs and, subsequently, lead to the further enhancement and refinement of programs and services that will benefit them and their families.
