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.
Amazing organization that truly has continued to help me and my kids in every aspect of it. It's been amazing experiences, knowledge and growth for me with wounded warrior so thank you for truly standing behind us vets and all your support
With all of the bad news about Wounded Warriors lately, I'd like to take a minute to say that they have helped me in my absolute worst of times. I live in the Chicago area and as a last ditch effort to find a job, I asked for help through the warriors to work program. The staff at Chicago was amazing. The boss there, Tim, helped me with my resume and talked to me for over an hour about interviewing. He walked me through the different job websites and even made a few calls to companies that were hiring. Within a week I had three interviews and within two weeks I had a job. The rest of the staff in the office was so helpful as well and they obviously love what they do and are great at it. I even started working with Sam to get healthier. If the Chicago office is any indication, Wounded Warrior Project is headed in the right direction.

During a Veterans Conference at the University that I was attending after getting out of the service I met Rick McKenna, a Warriors to Work Specialist. Rick encouraged me to become a member of the Wounded Warrior Project alumni. I hesitated at first, but the minute I joined I felt the support and dedication of this organization. Rick was able to guide me with resume writing and showed me opportunities on reaching out to potential employers. It may not seem like a lot, but each one of us needs different support. That was the kind of support I needed to get my confidence back after being medically discharged. The Wounded Warrior Project constantly gives me opportunities to connect with other alumni members through sponsored events. I am a proud Alumni!

Despite the recent events surrounding administration of the organization, my experiences with the Warriors To Work program have been outstanding! The regional office I am supported under (Chicago) did not have a program specialist, therefore they matched me with a specialist out of the Kansas office. Their support and ability to shoot straight through the HR system gave me the insight I needed to land the job I wanted, not the job I had to take. The consistent follow-through was unparalleled and appreciated. All in all - the best employment transition support I have received since being medically retired from service. The specialist (Rick McKenna) cares about getting us where we want to be and works his tail off to help make the connections needed to get us the opportunities.
I have been a part of Wounded Warrior Project since August 2004. During this period wounded warrior project was just a small organisation with the intention of helping Wounded service members recover form their injuries in Iraq and Afghanistan. This organisation has grown to a multi million company that has helped me with my recovery with the injuries sustained in iraq. i had gotten disconnected from myself and my family but, thanks to wwp I attended peer mentor support groups that helped me deal with my PTSD issues. thank you wwp i have made a great recovery and have made many great friends along the way. Thank you wwp for everything you do and are doing to help all veterans recover from injuries both physical and mentally.
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.
