Have you heard of the Wounded Warrior Project? This is a welcome and supportive group made up of veterans, their family and friends, and all those who donate monthly or otherwise, to help wounded veterans.
Those wounds can be physical -loss of limbs, shrapnel, brain injury or it can be an emotional wound such as PTS syndrome. Much has been written recently about this altruistic group and their endeavors to help rebuild the lives of those wounded in Afghanistan or Iraq. Perhaps you’ve seen their ads on television.
They serve freshly wounded soldiers or those who’ve suffered for years. Wounded Warrior Project serves to make up the slack from the Veterans Administration who often cause delays and roadblocks to soldiers seeking help. Ask any Vet and he’ll probably relate a harrowing story of delay and/or refusal.
The following information is from their web site. Please donate what you can, either one time or monthly.
The mission of Wounded Warrior Project® is to honor and empower wounded warriors.
To raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to provide comfort items to wounded service members has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they recover and transition back to civilian life. Thousands of wounded warriors and caregivers receive support each year through WWP programs designed to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment.
Wounded Warrior Project® is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
