I seriously cannot thank the Wound Warrior Project enough for all of their assistance, support and financial help. This year seemed to have given me some bumps in the road. I'm a woman Navy Veteran and a single house owner. I have been trying to make ends meet since leaving the military in 2007. Because of the WWP, I now have proper working plumbing. Also, my car died and the cost of the repairs (on a car I'm still paying for) were extremely beyond my budget. This could have been a hardship that would've been very challenging to deal with but again, the WWP came to my rescue. To add to my blessings, I am now about to participate with a WWP-Female Alumni Summit in Austin, TX. I have never been given such a wonderful opportunity to better myself and to have a mini-vacation. A huge part of this is the Minnesota Alumni Chairman, Louis Goldstein. He has always been there for me and never hesitates to reach out to see what he and the WWP can do. I have tears of joy just thinking about how truly wonderful everyone has been to me. I want to say THANK YOU to all involved and I appreciate what you do, not only for me, but all veterans! ~Jaimie Bahl, Minnesota

Catherine,

Words cannot express how truly thankful I am to you and the WWP for conducting this event for us. As stated, because I'm single without children, I haven't felt comfortable to show up to past events, although I was pretty busy with my volunteer responsibilities too. When the notice came out for Merry Monday, I almost hestitated because we all know it's hard to care for ourselves and especailly when the service is free!! I'm so truly thankful and glad for all involved because it was more than just a day to de-stress. I was able to hear stories of others struggles and setbacks. I witnessed notes being taken to find more assistance and business cards being exhanged so others can stay in touch and make sure they don't leave anyone behind. I'm on a tight budget and would not be able to afford these services for a long time. The camaraderie that was shared has turned into lifelong bonds. At one point, I remember hearing a spouse tell their story and I thought to myself "Why am I even here, others have it worse." However, I had a purpose and didn't know it. My stylist is dating a Navy Veteran and we were able to talk and help her with some claims information. I'm still taken aback to those who would donate their time and energy to help others feel better about themselves. That says a lot about them & it gives so much happiness to this time of year! I felt bad that I couldn't even afford to tip them but I hope they receive good karma in return!


Again, my deepest gratitude to you, the WWP & Simonson's Spa in Plymouth!

The Wounded Warrior Project is an excellent program for injured veterans to network and reduce combat stress. I was amazed how the activities were organized and plan out to incorporate teamwork from each member.

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.

As a wounded warrior I have been on the front lines and praise the Lord there is wounded warrior project if not for them and all they have done for me I wouldn't be here now.
Thank you so much for your services, time, and patience with us wounded while we try to rebuild who we once were.

My experience with wounded warrior project is a wonderful project for veterans. There are great activities that people dedicated take the time to help military people and give us a great to shows, fishing trips, dinners, movies, and many ways to connect with others veterans from around the world. Be a part of the wounded warrior project you can save another soldier life by being part of a team.

Curtis Fluitt and the Wounded Worrior Project has been then most amazing help to me. I had a claim that was messed up in the system for over two years and the hard work and dedication Curtis put in had it finalized in a matter of months. Once again VA messed up the claim so I called back and he was willing to help again and have the final issues resolved within a month of me calling. Great work ethics and dedication to veterans who have sacrificed so much. I would recommend and have recommended several of my fellow vets to use them! 5 stars without hesitation for me!

Please, please, do something do something in or near Roanoke Va.
My wife has been looking after me for a long time and she deserves a retreat.
I unfortunately can't afford to give it to her. My health is failing pretty fast, can WWP please help.
