The article presents information on the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior (AW2) program. It says that AW2 assumed its current name in November 2005 after it was established in April 2004 as the Disabled Soldier Support System. The change did not alter the organization's mission, though, which is to never leave a fallen comrade, AW2 director Colonel Mary Carstensen said.
