Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am amazed at the number of people who have not been served by the WWP writing these assessments. I am a combat veteran with 27 yrs of service to our nation. I have received training, counseling, empowerment and education support from the WWP. They have provided my wife support in dealing with being a care giver of a wounded veteran. I have seen thousands of people served by this charity.

I have witnessed it save lives of our wound and injured warriors. I see alot people's sour grapes but question the validity of the complaints. I was able to ride a bike, I was told I would never do again, I visited places around the country I had not seen and found a new purpose in my life...after the military...Thanks to the Wounded Warrior Project! Judge not unless you have walked hobbled or crawled in the shoes of the people you are actually hurting! 58% toward support of warriors is the classification if you do not count items and gifts call acts of good faith which would actually included be 70% goes to the Warriors.

Review for HEROES ON THE WATER, Allen, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Heroes on the Water was there when I was experiencing the impact of Combat Stress, I had lost a total of 34 men during my 27 yrs of service. The last one was the one that broke my spirit, in addition to having to take part in the notifications of the families, I was informed my career was cut short by complications of my injuries. I was in a spiral.

Heroes on the Water gave me an chance to decompress and find my center. Kayak Fishing gave me a chance to relax, it was the water, the sun, and nature that came together along with the friendship and fellowship of community that cares! It truly turned me around.

My son commented that he had seen a rebirth of the father that he loved and enjoyed being with. My wife commented that without Heroes on the Water, she was not sure how I would have transitioned during my retirement. HOW allowed me to find a passion that aided my transition.

Henry David Thoreau wrote, "Many men go fishing all their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after." My Great Uncle came home from WWII and found serenity on the waters of Wisconsin, his son returned from Vietnam and told me the one thing that calmed him was fishing on the same ponds... I am following a family tradition. I give thanks to HOW for helping me capture freedom.
