Recently completed my first ever WWP event which was the Soldier Ride Chicago and couldn't say enough great comments about the event. Was an amazing experience from the event itself to the outstanding WWP employees that set everything up. Was able to finally meet other veterans that had very similar experiences and ideas towards recovery from our various issues we have. Can't wait for the next WWP event!
I just went on the Soldier Ride in Pittsburgh PA, and all i can say is WOW! It was an amazing opportunity and a great team spirit and friendship fostering event. I met some of the coolest and nicest people (which was to be expected), and hopefully made some long term friendships. I wish more people could attend such an awesome event. I hope to be able to attend one again sometime in the near future. This one will always be a fond memory that i will continue to share with everyone. Thanks Wounded Warrior Project for making this event available to us vets that truly need the distraction and change of pace in our lives.
I recently attended Soldier Ride Pittsburgh 2017. I had a great time and met a lot of other great Veterans that I will remain in contact with. I look forward to attending the events that WWP has and try to attend as many as I can. It provides an atmosphere where we can open up about what we're going through without worrying about being judged.
I was on the Carolinas Soldier Ride and loved it. It was my second Ride and I was able to associate with others with like issues. The Ride was harder than my last but totally worth it. My injuries were their first concern. They set me up on a specially fitted recumbent bike and a swag bag full of useful biking gear and sunglasses. I am proud to be an Alumni of WWP. The staff and volunteers were so considerate and warm.
I attended the Soldier Ride San Antonio Tx 2017. There are so many positive things to say about this but I will only list a few.
1) outstanding atmosphere!! Love the staff and love spending time with fellow brothers and sisters!!
2) This was the greatest event I have ever attended with WWP. The bond I have made with many of other vets in this program has opened new doors for me in my social life and I couldn't be happier.
3) This event helped me break out of my cage and open up and talk to other vets and start to enjoy life more.
The WWP has in my eyes done so much for us veterans that it blows my mind that they are always here if you need them no matter what the issues are or may become. I truly enjoyed myself on this soldier ride and I know for a fact that all the other warriors that were there did as well!!
Thank you WWP for this amazing event and keep up the great work!!
I recently attended Soldier Ride Atlanta 2017. It was a wonderful experience and allot of fun. Not only did we do the ride but we also went to the Georgia Aquarium and a Winery. The closeness shown between everyone involved was priceless. Thanks WWP. Keep up the great work.
My first WWP event took place in Atlanta. It was held fm 11-14 May 2017 and it was a very pleasant and highly organized one. All the coordination prior, during and even after the event (emails iot claim expenses) was second to none. The rides and extra activities were excellent as well but, the very best the WWP has is its staff. I can't say enough about Lonni Smith, Kajun, Charlie...I mean all of them seemed to be always ready and willing to help and to make our experience an unforgettable one. I can't wait to see them again in any other event or social gathering and wish them the very best as they continue to help wounded warriors! Thank You!!!
Hello My Band of Brothers and Sisters who are Members of The Wounded Warrior Project and Alumni. I am SFC, CHAVEZJOHNNY LUPE U.S ARMY 26 YEARS OF SERVICE. Combat Veteran and I am 100% Disable and all our stories are almost the same because we all have been in Battle or Supported those Combat Arms Units. What matters is that we all Served our Country when She or he called. What I ask if WWP can find some how to help us that are not close to the events that are put on in the Big cities and we miss out because we can't Travel 2 or 4 hours. We all Love what WWP has given us but it would be nice to send us Regal Cinema, Edward's Cinema Tikets to all of us who can't travel. We could take pictures of our family enjoying the events. I would ask if we could get a office here on the Central Coast of California in the City of Santa Maria of Santa Barbara County California it would help us WWP Veterans alot it could cover from Venture County, Santa Barbara County, San Luis Obispo County, and parts of Monterey. The city of Santa Maria would be a Perfect location since we have a New Veterans Clinic. We have Band of Brothers Softball Team, that plays ever friday night, Veterans Treatment Courts that is doing a Great Outstanding job with our Veterans. This is my story and I Love what the WWP is doing for us Veterans across America and Thank you for all your Support and GOD BLESS HOOAH. Tell my next Story on how it all began for me Joining our Military in 1984/85 I call it Back in the Day.

Don't know how to start this so I am going to start here. I usually get emails from WWP sometimes I open them, other times I don't. I saw an event "Peer Support" listed and it was near my home so I went. Leading up to this event I thought about committing suicide often sometimes daily. It was great to get out and be around people that have saved and that are going through similar issues. I felt good and now I feel apart of a team. This support group gives me something to look forward to. When I get down and think about hurting myself I think back to WWP and know I am not alone.
