Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA
This is our third year volunteering with WWIAF, an organization that has consistent leadership and direction. There is no question that all efforts (time, financial, etc.) are directed to meeting the mission of helping to heal our Purple Heart Heroes by connecting through outdoor sporting events. Timing is everything for these heroes and for some the atmosphere WWIAF creates at these events is the only "safe" place to tell their story.
We have been humbled by the courage and perseverance of each soldier who live their lives in a world of constant medical appointments, surgeries, and physical therapy.
WWIAF provides an opportunity to not only put their medical and emotional issues aside for a time, but provides these heroes with an opportunity to connect with the only people who can truly understand their challenges- other Purple Heart recipients. A Navy Purple Heart shared with us that although he had been out of the service for several years, he had purposely removed himself from any military connections. He had not talked about his experiences that led to his injuries for years-that is until he decided to participate in a WWIAF deer hunting event.
I have worked with and directed a non-profit in the past, and have never worked with a more mission driven organization that realizes their goals and those who give can see the benefits and end results of their work.
