General Information

Caregiver Information

Please write "NA" if you do not have any of the social media accounts:

WQW's Program Team is committed to objectivity when reviewing applications. This thorough screening process requires confirmation of participation in combat operations, either through the receipt of combat awards or proof of service in a location in which you received Imminent Danger Pay. 

If you are applying as a caregiver, please include your care recipient's service record (DD214 Member-4, ERB, ORB, BIR, BTR, etc.). We recognize that service records are confidential and are stored securely. 

Check the following locations on the DD214 to ensure eligibility (only one of the following requirements must appear):
  • Block 13: Decorations Medals, Badges, Citations, and Campaign Ribbons (check the continuation page for overflow of Block 13 information).
  • Block 18: Remarks. This is where you will find information about receiving Imminent Danger Pay.
If you do not see confirmation of participation in combat operations on the DD214, or if your care recipient is currently Active Duty or does not possess a DD214, please provide any official documentation of combat related service. This can include, but is not limited to:
  • Award Citations for Combat Awards (ie. Purple Heart, Combat Action Ribbon/Badge/Medal, Bronze Star with "V" device, etc.)
  • Service Record (which clearly indicates combat service and/or deployment information)

Caregiver and Caregiver Recipient Info

To ensure you are surrounded by other resilient caregivers facing similar challenges, it is helpful for us to know about your care recipient.

Thank you for your service to our country and your interest in WQW!
