Following a wartime injury and separation from service I felt both bitter about being "let go" from the Army and hesitant to call myself a "service-disabled" person because I had seen other soldiers who were hurt so much worse than I was. I felt like I didn't belong as either a veteran or a civilian. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) brought me in to a SoldierRide event and just accepted me. Surrounded by other warriors- some with severe injuries and some with invisible wounds, I just felt included. I was never separated out within the group for being "not injured enough" or "not injured in the right way". They just made me feel part of the team. My experience was so positive, in fact, that I later looked for job opportunities with their team- they just made me feel whole.

Every since I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I wasn't really comfortable about myself and my appearance. I withdrew from large crowds and become anxious around people I didn't know. This past weekend, I was able to attend a Soldier Ride and connect with other veterans from all over the US, and I can honestly say that it helped with my anxiety issues. it is such a blessing to be a alumni of this organization. Thank you WWP

Thank you to the Wounded Warrior Project and all sponsors for the 2015 North Carolina Soldier Ride. This event helped me personally and I am sure it helped all of the other veteran's in attendance. We have a lot to take away from this event and hope the support continue to help other veterans like me.

Wounded Warrior Project is more than some run of the mill charity, its a vetted lifeline to all of us soldiers, sailors, marines, coast guard and air force. They don't use our needs to benefit them like most of the other so called big name organizations. They really do care about where we've been and most importantly how to regain our future. Most of them have never even been in a uniform, they don't pretend to know what we've gone through and they don't expect us to just "get over it", they just know how to balance and challenge us in ways that are beyond anything I have ever experienced and the camaraderie with other warriors is instantaneous maybe because most of us have isolated ourselves and that need to be with our own is being met. If you've isolated yourself please reach out to WWP, I don't consider them an organization, I consider them the family I never had.

Its been ten years since i was wounded, i have become very withdrawn among other things, This was my first Soldier Ride, and i absolutely loved it. It was nice to be around like minded individuals that understand the price paid for doing what we do. I love WWP; and cannot wait to get more involved. Thank You

Thanks for the Kentucky Speedway Race Tickets, I had a great time being out with my Brothers and Sisters in arms. This outing with them really helps pull me back into the world.

I just want to thank the WWP, especially Kim Neff, for allowing my husband and grandson the opportunity to share with other alumni the experience of zip lining at Mammoth Cave. This experience really helped my guys to bond over something we would not be able to afford. Raising 3 young grandchildren on our limited budget as well as having physical limitations this event was so inspiring for both of them. They came away with such enthusiasm and since of accomplishment. Thank you WWP for giving them the opportunity. With gratitude and respect we appreciate your help so very much. SD, Clarkson,Kentucky

Wounded Warrior Project has exceeded expectation again! I am former Marine, who's job was recently eliminated in April but with help of WWP project Warriors to Work I was able to get the resume help I needed to attract employers. Not only did they help me with my resume they gave me advice on salary negotiations and advise on what to do and expect on the first day of employment. I can not say enough great things about WWP! Not to mention I have been selected to participate in the upcoming WWP Offroad Cycling Challenge in August! Not only did they assist me with landing a great job, they also are providing me a fun, relaxing break doing something I love to get my mind right.
