Navy Safe Harbor Anchor Program

The Anchor Program helps Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor carry out its promise to provide transition assistance to seriously wounded, ill, and injured Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, as well as their families. It provides them with an invaluable network of support during a critical chapter of their lives – the conclusion of their military careers. The Anchor Program matches Sailors and Coast Guardsmen in transition with sponsors in their communities, perhaps from a local Reserve component and/or from local veteran groups. Some sponsors are active-duty Sailors and Coast Guardsmen, as well. Though participating in the Anchor Program is purely voluntary, Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor urges all of its enrollees to take advantage of this important service. If you are interested in becoming an Anchor Program sponsor, please contact the Anchor Program Coordinator at 202-433-9149. Access the Anchor Program sponsor guide, and learn about what it takes to sponsor wounded warriors. To hear more about the Anchor Program, visit Navy Wounded Warrior – Safe Harbor’s YouTube channel.

"It takes an extra bit of dedication to do this job. I know it's rough. It's rough on you, rough on your families, but it's never been more necessary at any time in our history than it is right now. Without someone willing to put in the long hours, willing to suffer the frustrations, willing to risk the dangers, our country wouldn't be sure of continued peace and freedom. There's no greater gift that you can give to your family, your community, or your country than the protection that you afford all of them by this job that you're doing. " --President Ronald W. Reagan, 20AUG1981
