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.

I can never register for any of these events. I either get to them too late, or someone else has priority. My family is just as important as the Sargeant majors, or generals, are they not?

Project 22 showing this past Saturday was absolutely amazing. It was emotional but my wife and I enjoyed the experience.

I used to be a HUGE WWP supporter. They haven't had ANY as in NONE, ZERO, ZIP programs in Wisconsin in the last 4 months, only 3 in last 6.

They will waste your money paying themselves and buying shtuff supposedly for vets but will use exclusively for themselves.

DONT WASTE YOU MONEY. Donate to a local VSO that WILL help vets in the local area such as the VFW or American Legion. These guys are not bogus and had to have some leadership leave the org just for that reason.

I have participated in several bicycling events and it has helped me tremendously. I have also participated in nutrition, boxing, and other wellness events. They also assisted me with my VA claim. The staff is very caring and helpful. They have been the one place for me to turn for help when no one else was available or cared. I will be forever grateful for their help and assistance.

As a 100% Disable Veteran of over 24 yrs of Active Federal Service in the US Army I feel very thankful for what the WWP is done for me and other warriors during the Soldier Ride Jacksonville Base Camp, The WWP organization and their staff are compare to angels dedicated to serve and honor all warriors and their families. I wish this great organization lots of blessings and once again THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS……….. DUTY, HONOR, COUNTRY

My name is Jaime Feliciano and I am a wounded warrior involved with the Wounded Warrior Project. I have been involved with five events over the last year with WWP including Solider Ride in San Diego last weekend. This program has helped me so much with stepping out of my comfort zone and being more active. With the program I have tried and done things I would never have on my own from reading and learning about health, foam rolling, yoga, walking/running, and riding a bike. Although WWP is not a cure for pain they definitely have helped me in exploring new ways to help with pain and to find outlets to deal with the pain and emotions. More importantly I have been able to build meaningful relationships with other veterans who are "my normal". The staff has always been nothing but helpful, respectful and professional at all times. Although there has been negative press about this organization I still feel that they are doing a great job and I will continue to work with them and spread the word on how great they are.

My husband was deployed in 2003 on OIF, he came back severely ill, we have struggled for 10 years against the army and the VA. As parent of 3 kids with special needs and a ill husband, living in the terrible economy of Puertpuerto ,without a job, everything was a mess. But everything change when we found WWP.........wow!!! They helped us financially and whit my husband's VA claims. Their peer support group took a 3 hour drive to my house with 4 trucks full of food, diapers, wipes, clothes, household goods,furniture and $500 worth of gift cards. ...They talk to us, we cried,we laughed, But the most emotional moment was when Daniel, a WWP alumni gave my husband a medal like coin. I can honestly say I'm glad to have found the WWP....they truly make a HUGE difference. If I was going to write about it I will have to write a book. But from the WWP....thank you Korina Martines, Collie Waigth,Julio Quiñones, Edna and Daniel Dumas, Jerry Rivera,Pichy.....and so many others that have treated us with kindness and care
