Warrior Support Team™ Adaptive Clothing

Adapted Camo Blouses and Velcro Shorts

The sooner our wounded warriors can become independent again, the sooner they can begin the internal and emotional healing process and learn to live in their new normal. To gain that independence, they may need clothing that has been adapted for ease in dressing and undressing.


Warrior Support Team™ Adaptive Clothing

It has been a great privelege for MarineParents.com and the Warrior Support Team™ (WST) to work with dedicated volunteers who have provided adaptive clothing to wounded, ill, and injured warriors. With the wars winding down in both Iraq and Afghanistan, the WST has found that there have been fewer requests for adaptive clothing than in years past. Therefore, after much deliberation, we have decided to discontinue the adaptive clothing program. However, we will provide adaptive clothing to wounded, ill, and injured warriors as needed. Warriors and/or family members may still request adaptive clothing at this time.

We would like to thank the seamstresses who make the adaptive clothing for their hard work and dedication over the years. Without their help, this program would not have been possible.

Adaptive Clothing

Part of the recovery process from a severe injury or severe injuries is once again becoming self-sufficient in tasks most of us may take for granted. The sooner our wounded warriors can become independent again, the sooner they can begin the internal and emotional healing process and learn to live in their "new normal." To gain that independence, they may need clothing that has been adapted for ease in dressing and undressing.

We have found a wonderful team of volunteer seamstresses who adapt clothing for wounded warriors by replacing entire seams with velcro closures. The clothing and supplies are purchased with donations made to the program and are distributed by our volunteers to patients at military treatment facilities such as the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. If you would like to donate to this program, please click here.

"Spice of Life"

Spice of Life

The Warrior Support Team&trade has found a special group of ladies who make adaptive clothing with tear-away seams in order to give wounded, ill, and injured warriors the dignity of being able to dress themselves with more ease--the Peacemakers Quilting Group from Moberly, Missouri.

These dedicated volunteer seamstresses have come together through the Randolph County "Spice of Life" program for active seniors. This program is run by The Randolph County Caring Community and is designed to enhance the quality of life for adults 55+ through a coordinated, community-based program model. As part of the program, these women sew adaptive shorts for wounded, ill, and injured warriors and they attach a personalized note to each pair before sending them to the recipient. The adaptive shorts have been a HUGE hit at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
