Eh as a soldiers wife, I see wwp do a lot of great things for a lot of people. I just feel they don't do enough for those with a family of more than 2 dependants. Low of funds is what I constantly hear yet we see the media of millions going to bs.
My husband has a hard time interacting with people, he has issues, overall he is a broken soldier! We as family are all he's got we are his comfort zone, we as in myself and our 3 kids, I'd like for us to have the ability to do things with other soldiers and their families and wives, but we never get things in our city that are family orientated. Sometimes we will get soldier and 1 guest if lucky 2, what's that wife and 1 kid? Broken soldiers usually (in our case) can not work. Our income is barely enough to cover rent bills car payments etc , diapers.... yet America is screwed up And we apparently make to much to get any Snap or tanf(yet all these people that don't need it get it)... anyway we'd like the same opportunity the single soldiers or soldier with tiny families have, wwp should have more family orientated type events, or if your going to do snowboarding, some offroading, camping, and fishing, allow more than just 2guests because overall families can and do all of that too. Children should be involved, remember some of these soldiers fought to not only make a difference in America but to improve the country their children grow up in, because those children matter that much! So quit being greedy fund raising money to supposedly use on soldiers when your only using a small percentage to help a small portion while the rest goes to your $10,000 per bottle of champagne parties.

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

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.
