Army Recovery Care Program (ARCP) (formerly known as Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2))

Army National Guard: Drilling

Benefit Fact Sheet


The Army Recovery Care Program (ARCP) transitions Soldiers, their Families, and/or caregivers back to the force and/or to Veteran status, through a comprehensive program of medical care, rehabilitation, professional development and achievement of personal goals. The ARCP was previously known as the Warrior Care and Transition Program.

Through the use of Soldier Recovery Units (SRUs), ARCP manages the recovery of wounded, ill and injured Soldiers requiring complex care. The program also provides resources and advocacy for Families and caregivers of Soldiers recovering in the program. There are 14 SRUs located on military installations across the country.

There have been over 80,000 Soldiers that have participated in ARCP since its inception.


Army National Guard Soldiers who are on drill status are not eligible for ARCP. The Soldier must have sustained wounds, illness, or injuries while on active duty.

Reserve Component Soldiers (COMPO 2 and 3) not in Active Guard Reserve status who do not meet eligibility criteria will be managed remotely using the Reserve Component Managed Care (RCMC) program (COMPO 2) and the Remote Medical Management (RM2) (COMPO 3).

Remote Management Criteria


  • RCMC is a program that remotely manages National Guard Reserve Soldiers who meet eligibility criteria. OR


  • RM2 is a program that provides medical case management for non-complex United States Army Reserve Soldiers who are authorized evaluation and/or treatment while on active duty orders, but who do not meet ARCP entry criteria.
