THE RESULTS

In 2006, the Society expanded the traditional Visiting Nurse Program to include those returning from Iraq with physical injuries and traumatic stress disorders. The Combat Casualty Assistance Visiting Nurse program provides resources and support to Marines and Sailors who served in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF), Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) or Operation New Dawn (OND), as well as their loved ones.

For over a century, the Society has expanded its services and programs to support the changing needs of service members and their families. Yet our support is still provided by people who care about making life better for Sailors and Marines. Some things never change.
