As a double above knee amputee and veteran of the war on Terror i participated in a couple programs offered by WWP as they have a constant presence at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in washington DC. That said the so called programs they offer are nothing more than opportunities to raise money by proping the more severly injured in front of cameras. they treated both myself and a friend of mine who also was a double above knee amputee and a Navy Seal as an after thought leaving me without my wheelchair sitting on blacktop when it was almost 100 degrees and my friend without prosthesis while everyone else stood up and walked over to a tent for lunch to raise money. we had to scoot on our butts to the shade while my brother ran around trying to find us food and water, Since this was a Soldier Ride and we were cycling almost 35 miles that day. I have many other senarios that occured that would make you sick. This organization does indeed raise awarness, however it doesnt know the first thing about how to accommodate a severly wounded person with a physical disability. I urge anyone reading this to not to donate money to these people as the money spent on "programs" are really just fronts for fundraising.
