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.

Many veterans have noted that Wounded Warrior Project's "services" to veterans includes regularly e-mailing invitations to events that are already full. WWP counts each and every "invited" person as a veteran they helped that year. Same if the only assistance provided was a referral list of charities that might help with their issues. This is beyond sleazy and it is long past time for this profiteering "charity" to be exposed. And that is finally happening.

I am 80% percent disability with P.T.S.D. Issues since 2009 from Iraq. Last Year I became Homeless with my daughter and her 3 children. I called wounded warriors because they help you get into a home and they only gave me other referrals that were out of resources. I am still homeless and hoping I can get enough from income tax for 1st last month and deposit.

I really have been very impressed with WWP. Everything they try to do is in the best interest of most OIF/OEF Veterans. The Project Odysseus that helps PTSD wounded vets recover. Equestrian Veteran therapy programs are outstanding also are work in process. I really think a lot of this negative publicity is because other veteran organizations ( DAV,VFW) feel threatened and see a lot of their contributions dropping. But starting a which hunt against another organization is wrong because it is hurting Veterans they claim to help. There own bylaws prevent them from this. Leave WWP alone before they start looking at your real numbers. Be patient because a lot of veterans sign up for these programs. Once your picked you'll see what I mean. The programs are veteran focused and really helpful .

Found out this is a for profit organization spending lavishly on executive salaries and other non veteran related 'functions'.

Since signing up over two years ago we have yet to have a local event to participate in even after writing. Both my husband and I are disabled combat veterans. He was hit by an ied. Not only are functions non existent after requests, but request for help through VA claims would not be helped as well. I have done all the grunt work and even the birthday calls are a month late. The only thing we have received out of WWP is a free hat, water bottle and small throw.

I would look up a local outdoor veteran organization before donating here.

Wounded Warrior Project has helped me in many ways. My first outing was Soldier Ride NC. Their staff showed my that even with a spinal injury i can still get out and ride a bike. The information i received at SRNC has proven invaluable. My second and third outings were deep sea fishing trips. For me fishing is an ultimate therapy because nothing matters but that fish on the line.. on the second fishing trip there was an open spot when we went to leave the dock, and even though it was an alumni only event, the staff allowed my eight year old son to join us. We all had a blast, and my son and i got some time to bond and have fun together. In Dec 2015 they sent my whole family and my mother in law to see Disney on Ice for my daughters 5th birthday. I have never seen a bigger smile on my little girls face. They call periodically to check in on myself amd my wife and kids to make sure everything is going ok. If we have any event requests we forward them on amd they do their best to get is to them. WWP has helped us grow as a family, the extensive reach of their ability and willingness to help is unbelievable. If it weren't for WWP and their help amd activities, i would most likely be homeless, hungry and divorced. THANK YOU WWP FOR EVERYTHING YOU HAVE DONE FOR MY FAMILY

I wish I could rate them less then a one star. I was facing homelessness because of a service connected disability. When I contacted them for help all they did wad send a list of other charities to call for help. They couldn't even help me expediting my claims with the VA. I wouldn't donate a dime to this charity. Social security approved my case in 90 days, that's how bad my disabilities are. I say save your money and give it to an organization that really helps.

They deserve no stars because they help no one except themselves to all the money. The CEO gave himself a 100 million dollar
