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 is a great organization. Their staff is very dedicated to what they do. They are very professional about the way they conduct their services. They help inspire us veterans, and offer so much help, and tools to do so.

I have to say that this organization really goes above and beyond all expectations. They do a great job at encouraging me to get out and experience new things.

Due to my injuries sustained while in the service I have not been able to maintain a full time job. I'm a single mother and WWP gave me tickets for my kids and I to enjoy an event. It was nice to do something for my kids, who help me a lot, and that would not have happened had it not been for WWP. Thank you for giving us a much needed break and a chance to do something we couldn't have done otherwise

The WWP has done a fantastic job providing me with other veterans to help my recovery from combat. As a veteran who believes I did my job and don't deserve recognition, the WWP offers so much to help me in ways I didn't think I needed help, or that help was even possible. I wanted to give back, or actually pay it forward and the WWP offered me a chance to help my fellow veterans as a Peer Mentor, helping others to identify and talk with someone in the recovery process.

I cant say enough about WWP and Project Odysey. This retreat was top notch and the staff was phenomenal. Participation in the program not only boosted my spirits but helped me to realize I have worth and can do more then I thought. Since then I have been skiing with my family and have applied for and been accepted into the WWP TRACK program. I truly feel blessed to be an alumnus of such a wonderful, professional, and careing ORGINIZATION.

I cannot begin to express how humbled I am to be a part of WWP. As a recovering warrior, the opportunity to connect with those who share similar experiences and understand what I am going through is overwhelming. But just as important, every event I have attended or time I have spoken to anyone from the organization, the staff/volunteers have been amazing. And this includes support staff (HR,Legal) at WWP who are encouraged to go out on events and interact with warriors so that they can do their job as best they can. The desire to truly help wounded warriors is evident and I cannot thank them enough for all their support.

I have been on quite a few events Wounded Warrior Project has hosted and I can say, without a doubt, they are a first class organization. I have never been anything but very satisfied on every event I have been lucky enough to attend. 5 stars doesn't seem to be enough, there should be a special category for the best nonprofit organization out there, like 5 diamonds. The events I have been on has helped me interact with society again; I feel alive, and for that I am eternally grateful.
