HOPE FOR THE WARRIORS
October 26, 2011

There are many organizations who support the Military. Hope for Warriors supports the wounded military after they come home! This is when the need is the greatest. Veterans' unemployment in the USA is significantly higher than that of civilians. So, such an organzation who caters to getting wounded veterans back on their feet is essential for both the individual as well as our society's needs. Additionally, soldiers knowing that there is a resource to them should anything happen in the line of duty, can take pride in continuing to serve our Country and keep us safe!
An example of this organization's efforts - a marine from N. NJ was planning on making a career out of the USMC. He was injured in IRAQ. He could no longer use his legs/ankles.
Hope for Warriors donated a hand cycle to him, enabling him to successfully compete in a half-marathon. Not only did this address his physical needs, but also his emotional needs by giving him confidence that he could be a useful member of society again.
He has since joined Hope for Warriors' "Above & Beyond Professional Development Program" to help transition him into the civilian workforce.
This is one of many successes that this Charity has accomplished. I am proud to be a donor to keep them going!
