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.

WWP has been exceptionally wonderful. It hasn't been a year yet that I've been separated from the military, and my wounds are still healing, emotionally, mentally, and physically. But being able to participate in various programs and events like taking part in a Soldier Ride and the Peer support groups, and having a peer mentor has tremendously helped me along in my healing process. During the first couple of months of being medically retired, I was angry and felt thrown away. I cried when I focused in on the WWP logo because I knew that I used to be the strong Soldier, being able to carry my battle buddy. But the Wounded Warrior Project has been there with me during my journey every step of the way. I know that I still have a long journey ahead of me, but it doesn't look so bleak knowing the Wounded Warrior Project is there to support and carry veterans like me.

I honestly don't understand where negative reviews for WWP come from. I wonder if any of the people leaving them have ever really gotten involved in the organization. I can't say enough about what this organization has done for me. I've heard complaints about WWP not spending enough on warriors, but somehow, I feel overwhelmed by the enormous amount that has been spent on me. My family and I are so grateful.

I have been out of the military for 5 years and ever since I've felt lost, alone, and unwanted. I joined WWP a few years ago and since then I've attended several events. Most recently, I attended Soldier Ride and it was the most fun I've had in a long time. I felt like I was back with my family after a long reunion. I cannot adequately describe the support and acceptance I felt while attending this event. The help and concern that we received from our teammates (WWP staff) was above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you to all of those who put this event on for us, including the Soldier Ride and U-haul personnel!!!!

WWP has made me more sociable in an isolated and lonely world. I went on a Soldier Ride and it was the best experience Ive had with my battle buddies since before my trauma. I'm so grateful for the WWP, programs and staff.

I'm a recently discharged service-connected veteran and current Army Reserve service-member. Initially when I joined WWP as an alumni I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was an organization dedicated to both the physical and mental well-being of veterans. Through a series of health and wellness events, I experienced a sense of commraderie that adds value to my quality of life. As a veteran, being part of WWP has given me a voice and newfound inspiration which motivates me in the pursuit of future goals.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Organize infrastructure to coordinate more readily between different regions so there is better continuity within the organization across all spectrums.

I am pleased with the awareness for our vetetans hey have brought to our civilian community. I am very unhappy that most of their revenue goes to their organization and not directly in support of our Veterans.
My donations will go to veterans organizations that I know will use my donation in " direct" support of the veterans and their events.
