AFSOC Caregiver and Resilience Education (C.A.R.E.) Summit

SAVE THE DATE!! This year the Air Force Special Operations Command (AFSOC) is hosting a Caregiver and Resilience Education (C.A.R.E.) Summit in the Knoxville, Tennessee area 22-27 April 2019.

At this event, our wounded, ill or injured Air Commandos, caregivers and their families are invited to gather for a week of recreation and growth from the unique challenges they have individually and collectively experienced.

We have reserved the afternoon of Tuesday 23 April 2019 for organizations to interact and provide information regarding the support for the healing process your organization provides for these warriors and their family members.  

Below is a summary of the event and we sincerely hope to see your representatives at the summit.   

WHO:  AFSOC Wounded, Ill, and Injured, their Caregivers, and their children 

WHAT:  AFSOC CARE (Caregiver and Resilience Education) Summit

WHERE:  Resort TBD - (Knoxville, TN area). Will know specifics by end of February.  

WHEN:  22-27 April 2019
