Operation Warfighter (OWF) is a Department of Defense (DoD) internship program that provides opportunities for Recovering Service Members (RSMs) to participate in internships with Federal agencies during their rehabilitation process. These Federal internships allow RSMs to develop and practice newly assessed and identified work skills in a nonmilitary work environment.
The Education and Employment Initiative (E2I) is a collaborative effort, led by Department of Defense (DoD), with support from Federal, non-profit and private agencies, to address the synchronization, integration and possible expansion of existing education and employment support efforts for wounded, ill, and injured Service members. E2I postures the wounded, ill, and injured Service member to transition from active duty to civilian life by fine-tuning their career readiness for placement opportunities prior to transition.
