They have done nothing for me, I am disabled veteran with monthly low income from service connection, that being said they offer no travel to do anything you have to pay out of pocket , for me that is impossible because bills come first. I thought they would get me out of the house and get me to enjoy life again but they think Chicago is the only town in Illinois so if your not around Chicago get get to do nothing ... they are thieves period even when u put in to do something they still put u through a process where they can tell you no... where does all the money go where certainly not to me a so called alumni
this the best project for wounded vets. so far great experience with multiple projects such as
computer IT cets, running program and soldier ride.
Thank You Guys

What inspires me to give is my daughter kourtney she is in remision from leaukemia now for 15 years so as a mom i know the pain and challenges of a child in need..i have donated to the wounded warrior project with my children and it was very rewarding for me. Im also a memeber of the leaukemia lymphomic societys news letter and help out with that to. For all those special people who have been through it all with me i apreciate everything and have the deepest thanks to them.
HE FOUGHT FOR YOU AND ME: HOW COULD I FORGET HIM?
The soldier got both his legs blown off in Afghanistan. He was from a small town in the midwest, and had always wanted to serve his country. He'd been back for six months, and was trying to adjust to civilian life. Yeh, the world was turning, things hadn't changed for most of us but for this 26-year-old nothing would ever be the same again.
I read his story and looked at his photographs – playing with his dog, giving it his all at the rehabilitation center, laughing with his parents – and I knew I had to donate to www.woundedwarriorproject.org Their slogan is “the greatest casualty is being forgotten” and you can be sure they don't forget: WWP provides support to these wounded soldiers who risked everything to keep us safe, and have paid the ultimate price. WWP helps them heal and rebuild their lives , including finding them jobs and engaging them with their communities and the wider world.
What a cause!
I donated $36.00. Why $36, you may ask? Well, I am Jewish, and in Hebrew, words equal numbers, and 18 is a very special number, because it parallels the word CHAI, which means 'LIFE'. So I donated 'twice CHAI' for his two legs that had gone, but I was confident that with his determination, positive spirt and heart he would find a way to move forward – emotionally and physically. He was already experimenting with artificial limbs and a new technological invention that he could wear which mimics walking. I believed in this brave, young man, and was – with my small donation – willing him to get strong and live a fruitful, happy life. Every little bit helps!

they spent more money suing another non profit 5 times over a logo than they do on helping veterans. their website is so vague i don't know if they are empowering veterans to reintegrate into society or become drug dealers. most of their admin makes more than $100,000 a year which is a lot for a NONPROFIT organization. i would give them -10 stars if it was possible they're the worst ever

Folks, you must remove the stars based on the truth
of what has just come to surface regarding Wounded
Warrior. CEO, Steven Nardizzi & COO, Al Giordano fired.
More people had to be involved other than
the top two personnel at this non-profit.
I participated in Soldier Ride Tampa Florida. This was a great event that I would recommend for Veterans. The staff were very supportive and courteous. This is a great organization for current and prior service members.

For the past six months when the events come out on that date as soon as it comes out all events are closed so are the workers and their families getting all the events filled

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.
