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.
The WWP Soldier Ride was a great way to meet other warriors and to live the logo. Sometimes you need help and you're the person being carried and sometimes you're the person helping and carrying a battle buddy. It was a great time to meet new friends, help those how needed encouragement and to rejuvenate myself. The staff was awesome, friendly and very caring.
The WWP has failed in North Carolina from a retired veterans perspective. First offni work 65 hours a week to support my wife and children. Secondly I live over two hours from Ft. Bragg. All the events that are put on are 2 or more hours away from me and or are during the weekdays. I have asked for years for them to look into this yet they have done nothing. Awesome for the veterans that live near Ft. Bragg I'm sure it's a blast. WWP talks about how it's important to be with your fellow veterans and do things together to bad any of us that ACTUALLY have to work have no clue what that's like.
Not all wounds are visible. That being said, these people are the champions of understanding that. They have saved my life. More so than they will ever know. It's hard for people in "underserved" areas, I know, I just moved to one. Even if you can only attend an event or 2 a year, go! Be with people that understand us. When you do that, you WILL make connections and friends. Stop 22. This helps. They help. If they can't, they know someone that can. STOP 22!!!!
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
After leaving the army I struggled with day-to-day life having flashbacks of my time in Iraq. The VA had one solution give him drugs.
I found out about The Wounded Warrior Project I was immediately paired up with a combat stress specialist who checked on me consistently. She told me about the free resources offered by the wanted warrior Project. I first attended project Odyssey and met several other veterans who suffered from PTSD. This program showed me many tools on how to help cope with this serious problem. The employees of Wounded Warrior Project don't take this is just a job but they truly care about our nations veterans. I donate money every month to the Wounded Warrior Project and I attend as many events as I can. Wanted warrior Project has far exceeded anything that our government has offered our veterans. Our government has let our veterans down and the wanted warrior Project has picked up the slack

I have been an Alumni and donor to The Wounded Warrior Project for the past 2 years the organization has offered me more support and services than our own government programs set up to support us veterans. The staff at the Wounded Warrior Project has been available to offer support and guidance to me and my family as well as numerous other veterans I know. There never seems to be a shortage of volunteers for their events either. The WWP events in the Northeast are all fully staffed with volunteers which says they have a great following.
The WWP has truly changed my life
Went on the 2015 Boston soldier ride, and was able to reconnect with service members that were going through some of the same things I was. It was a great. Many people from the community came out to volunteer and cheer us on during our ride. WWP is great Nonprofit!
WWP went all out! I just got back from a 5 day (including travel) event. The staff were friendly, professional and worked like a well oiled machine. The staff spared no expense or effort to make sure we were treated right and got what we needed. This event was supposed to be an introduction to fitness, outside activity, healthy eating and it delivered on all in spades. In addition the group of military veterans from all branches quickly bonded and the camaraderie enhanced the whole experience. In addition, the community support for this WWP event from ordinary people showered every veteran there with appreciation and respect such that I came home feeling recharged, appreciated, valued, more whole and educated. I bet all the others did too...
I recently attended the WWP Soldier ride in Nashville. It was an event that I was told by numerous wounded warriors is an opportunity of a lifetime and it will change your life. I am a pretty active guy and did some research and was invited to this awesome event. I love being around veterans that are living with some of the same nightmares that we encountered in combat. The soldier ride brought us all together and I have walked away with 50 new friends. I am purchasing a new bike and will be working on a healthier lifestyle. I cannot thank the Wounded Warrior Project enough for this awesome experience. Keep up the great work and Semper Fi!

The WWP is a awesome organization that I have the honor of being part in. I am a Wounded Warrior Alumni and have attended many events that the WWP hosts. I have learned valuable information and have connected with many wounded warriors such as myself. Keep up the awesome work WWP!
I honestly don't know where to begin. I recently attended the WWP Soldier Ride in Nashville, TN. First I'd like to start off by saying thanks to everyone who helped get this set up. ALL of the staff truly care and were amazing! This experience made me not only realize there is a lot of help our there for wounded warriors but it also made me realize that I too can do more. With that being said I strongly encourage anyone who has not attended a WWP event to do so. I will certainly do more not just only with WWP but I will also donate more of my time and money than I currently am!
WWP enabled me to reconnect with my military family through positive physical activity leaving me with a fresh outlook on life.
