ARLINGTON, Va. — The Army has changed the name of its Disabled Soldier Support System, or DS3, to the U.S. Army Wounded Warrior Program.

The program, which debuted in April 2004, is aimed at soldiers with a disability rating of 30 percent or greater, including amputees, severe burn cases, and other grave injuries received as a result of combat actions after Sept. 11, 2001.

Disabled soldiers are teamed with an advocate who will monitor and support the veteran and his or her family for a minimum of five years, assisting with the transition to civilian life.
