Many veterans have noted that Wounded Warrior Project's "services" to veterans includes regularly e-mailing invitations to events that are already full. WWP counts each and every "invited" person as a veteran they helped that year. Same if the only assistance provided was a referral list of charities that might help with their issues. This is beyond sleazy and it is long past time for this profiteering "charity" to be exposed. And that is finally happening.

Well, I'm not sure if these events are real or fake. Every time I'm sent an invite, I click on the apply now and I always get a quick note stating it no longer available, so please don't invite me to something that already full. I don't have time for emotional games.

My wife and I recently attended the WWP Alumni Summit Couples Retreat and had an amazing time. The staff was very professional and all the accommodations were fantastic.
The program was very motivational and empowering including physical activities (yoga, running, walking...), entertainment (horse back riding, Segway, bonfire...), and we learned better communication methods, which we will implement for the rest of our lives. We were reminded all the WWP resources and points of contact.
It was great seeing how much they care and the respect that they have for all veterans. We came back home feeling recharged and ready to tackle new challenges.
Thank you WWP for a much needed retreat and everything you do for our veterans.

I and several friends have turned to them for help but never received anything but a run around. At a recent Marine Corps League meeting I asked about them and no one knew anyone who had ever been helped by them.

The Wounded Warrior Project is a great service for Wounded Warriors
they flew me and my service dog to San Antonio for the WWP Soldier Ride
it was the first time since I got out of the Army that I was comfortable being around
other people other than my family they have many services for us and they go the extra mile to make us feel comfortable

I tried to get help financially and they send you to another organization. I contacted the operation homefront and they were very rude, had me jump through soo many hoops, I felt like they just want the money for themselves and their corporate jets and offices. From all the money that gets donated, very little goes to the soldiers, VERY UPSETTING!!!!

The WWP has failed in North Carolina from a retired veterans perspective. First offni work 65 hours a week to support my wife and children. Secondly I live over two hours from Ft. Bragg. All the events that are put on are 2 or more hours away from me and or are during the weekdays. I have asked for years for them to look into this yet they have done nothing. Awesome for the veterans that live near Ft. Bragg I'm sure it's a blast. WWP talks about how it's important to be with your fellow veterans and do things together to bad any of us that ACTUALLY have to work have no clue what that's like.
