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.

I just recently attended Soldier Ride® Miami/Key West with Wounded Warrior Project and had an awesome experience. This was a life changing experience for me personally, physically and mentally. I truly loved the camaraderie, reuniting with other Veterans and I really loved the support and accommodations from the volunteers, donors, onlookers and most important the WWP staff.

Hi Mike, First and foremost, thank you for your service. We recognize we are able to enjoy our freedom only because there are people like you defending it. We are pleased to hear you had a memorable experience on Soldier Ride – it is a powerful program. We love hearing about warriors’ experiences with our programs. Other warriors have told us that sharing their stories can be therapeutic because it helps reach other warriors in similar situations. We would love to help you share yours. Can I have a member of our storytelling team reach out? Sincerely, WWP Social Media
I participated in the 2016 soldier ride in Jacksonville, Fl.
It was a great experience and a very motivating experience. I got to spend time with fellow veterans and feel that comradery I felt while enlisted. The WWP team were really loving and helpful and welcoming. You could tell they love what they do and have a passion for helping veterans out! I recommend it to all wounded warriors.
I have participated in previous events hosted by the WWP. This is an AWESOME organization. I had the privilege to participate in the WWP Soldier Bike Ride 2016 in Jacksonville and it was amazing. The staff had it really organized and well-put together. The schedule was not overwhelming. The accommodations were on-point! The camaraderie was the best - great bunch of positive-minded veterans who gave it their all! Just want to thank all the supporters and donors of WWP. Without your giving we could not do what we do through WWP. Thanks to all the hardworking people who sacrifice their time and effort to help us all lead a better and more productive life! GOD bless you all!
I have yet seen any type of support and ALL of the activities in Illinois that they set up are not even close to what I like doing. I am an outdoor enthusiast period, I said that in the questionnaire that I received almost a year ago and I have yet had a response or have seen anything about Fishing or hunting. WHAT A JOKE!
I came from the desert war myself. I was medivac do to heart and tbi issues. My issues were not bomb explosive issues or anything extreme like this. I did see folks with injuries and wounds that I never want to see again. At the time I was a Navy Cop and a Navy Corpsman so I saw a lot of both. So when I was send back to the hospital, wounded warrior project rep was there to see us. She was very nice, and WWP helped me and my friends to adapt more easily. I remember from previous deployments in the Marines, when we came back, there was nothing there, not even a thank you! WWP was there from beg to end! They gave us civilian clothes, and see other vets to help each other out! The military teaches us how to be a team, and I truly love WWP because they are what that is...a TEAM! WWP, I wish you were here during the first Gulf war, because when I had to deal with some wounded at the hospital from there, it was sad. I could have used that help at that time, but I am always appreciated of your help to others! I support WWP all the time no matter what! They are my go to team always! I will go to them first before my wife because they know what we go through! Peace to all of you! And thanks for your service my brothers and sisters!
I have utilized several programs and found that they are one of the few that truly care about the individual veterans. They got me a job using W2W and I utilized several other programs with positive results.
