Helping those who serve: Wounded Warrior Project

Memorial Day is a stark reminder about the sacrifice men and women make to serve in the American military. Fortunately for those who serve, there are selfless organizations such as the Wounded Warrior Project that work hard to help military veterans and their families.

“Veterans and service members who incurred a physical or
mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military on or after
September 11, 2001. You are our focus. You are our mission,” the nonprofit
states on its website. “Here, you’re not a member – you’re an alumnus, a valued
part of a community that’s been where you’ve been, and understands what you
need. Everything we offer is free because there’s no dollar value to finding
recovery and no limit to what you can achieve.”

The Wounded Warrior Project offers an array of services and programs, such as its Combat Stress Recovery Program, Family Support and a Physical Health & Wellness Program. Statistics demonstrate the urgent need for Wounded Warrior’s numerous services.

“More than 52,000 servicemen and women physically injured in
recent military conflicts. 500,000 living with invisible wounds, from depression
to post-traumatic stress disorder. 320,000 experiencing debilitating brain
trauma. Advancements in technology and medicine save lives—but the quality of
those lives might be profoundly altered. The numbers speak for themselves,
because not every warrior can. With the support of our community of don ors and
team members, we give a voice to those needs and empower our warriors to begin
the journey to recovery.”
