My husband and I got to attend Casino Night in San Antonio, Texas. We had such a great time. The atmosphere was inviting and positive. It was great to hang out and get to know other WWP families.
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!!!
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 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!
