Wounded Warriors United has personally made a huge impact in my life. They are the most caring organization you will ever meet. This group is literally all about the Warriors. I have been extremely honored to attend a couple different events and each time I'm left blown away at the hospitality and sincerity of this organization!

I have never been so impressed with the dedication and level of volunteerism shown by WWU. I have had the pleasure of working with some great folks that are involved for all the right reasons and take no salary either! After working in the non profit sector, this charity is the real deal and your support is 100% dedicated to the cause.

Awesome guys that really care about vets! They don't have a payroll so everything they raise goes to the outings

I've volunteered with them in fundraising and the staff is truly amazing with hearts so big.. It leaves me with no words.
In less than a heart beat they were there for us by getting roofing donated when our insurance wouldn't cover even 1/4 of the cost. There is no limit WWU would go to help veterans of any era!

I had the honor to talk with Wounded Warriors and get to know some of the members in Kansas. Such a great group of people that truly care about helping those that have given so much for our country.

So far I have been to two wounded warrior United events and have nothing but good things to say about this organization. Both events were the most fun I have had in a long time, and not to mention all the great people you meet at these events. This is a great organization and I am looking forward to attending more of their up coming events !

We met at the bear camp in Minnesota earlier in October. Rarely am I impressed with a group or organization, but I certainly was with this one. Tom and Andy were with everyone all weekend doing what they could for the guys and just making it an overall great experience . Skyler and JD were awesome to meet, they really gave me a new outlook on life. They seemed to be having a great time. which is what the whole program is about. When I donate, I don't want my money going to the people who run the program for their own personal gaines, I want it to go to the people who deserve it, and that's exactly what this Program does. If you're looking to give something back to the men and women who gave so much for us this is the place .

My name is Stephen Ball, I am a DAV from VietNam era, USMC...I first learned about Wounded Warriors United through LinkedIn, a professional networking organization...Tom Tavtigian, the founder was explaining about it in a recreational group.. I connected with him and offered to help him in any way I could...What this organization does for veterans is awesome, especially since nearly all the funding goes into outdoor therapy for the veterans... I have helped donate funds, introduced retired professional athletes to WWU to assist with fundraising, and even volunteered my small 400 acre hobby farm for hunts.. WWU is an incredible organization that truly benefits the veterans!

The wwu does a great job in getting our wounded soldiers into the outdoors. They are a great group of people to work with and provide many different types of events for the participants. And they do it at no cost for the soldiers.

The Wounded Warriors United is a great organization. Tom Tavatigan is very dedicated to what he does. He goes out of his way to get wounded Soldiers together for a good cause. It is a good combat stress recovery, physical health, and wellness. Fishing trips, Turkey hunts, Deer Hunting, and the most recent event a 10 day Bear hunt. It seems that a lots of wounded warriors bonded and enhanced the whole experience. This is a wonderful thing what the Wounded Warriors United are doing , Keep up the great work Tom.

I first met Tom and his staff earlier this year, great group of people that love fulfilling the dreams of wounded servicemen. There couldn't be a better group of guys out there. I look forward to working with them in the future.

I would like to nominate the Wounded Warriors United organization. What a great organization that gives back to our wounded vets by taking them on hunting and fishing trips and more. This organization is 100% the best. I believe in them and what they do so much that I closed my café and did a pancake feed to help raise money for their cause and hope to do it again. You really couldn't ask for a better group. Wounded Warriors United is number 1 in my book.

Tom Tavtigan and his crew running Wounded Warriors United are top notch. I had a great experience on a turkey hunt with them, we all were welcomed like family. Everyone wanted to talk and hear our stories, tell a few of their own, and make new friendships. We met some KC Chiefs alumni, and thr hosts and their friends and family were amazing! I had a successful hunt but the best part was meeting and talking with everyone involved and also meeting new warriors...I think that the events are great but the main take away is new military wounded warriors and sharing experiences together. This is a huge part of the healing process. Thank you WWU!!

WWU is an awesome non-profit group that does nothing but wonderful things for their members. I had the privilege of assisting with one of their events and not only was the staff amazing but the wounded warriors they brought were just an awesome all around group of guys. Always respectful, carrying, and laughing. Always have had nothing but immense respect for our brave soldiers who are willing to fight and sacrifice for my freedom, but after getting to know these guys personally they are easily some of the best people I have ever met. I look forward to having the pleasure of assisting with another event in the near future and tell others who haven't had the opportunity to definitely try and get involved. CLASS ACT PROGRAM, CLASS ACT MEMBERS!!

Wounded Warriors United is an amazing non-profit organization that challenges wounded warriors and families in great outdoor adventures. They are 100% non-profit with a lot of heart towards military vets. Every dollar donated to WWU goes to help a military family. I want to thank all the pro staff from WWU for the amazing bear hunt in Minnesota. I miss you guys.

Wounded Worriers United, what a great organization with only GREAT things to say about it. Not only am I thankful to know the staff, but being able to attend one of their events was even more humbling. The amount of sheer appreciation the organization has for our veterans is overwhelming. God bless.
