Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was in a very tough place upon my return from Afghanistan. I went on a turkey hunt in Wausau Wisconsin. They teamed me up with another combat wounded veteran who had already experienced healing and was trained as a peer mentorer by the organization. That was the first time that I felt comfortable talking to anyone. Needless to say the hunt was a success but the weekend turned my life around. If it was not wounded warriors in action I don't know where my life would be at. I know it would be in a very different place that it is now. Thank you wounded warriors in action.

Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This organization turned my post deployment life around. Matching Purple Heart Veterans with other Purple Heart Veterans in nature is the best way to heal. Peer to peer therapy has the highest rate of success for treatment of physical and mental wounds. You can open up to a mentor who has gone through the same things as you. Puts the Va and WWP to shame.
