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

Rating: 5 stars  

I attended my first WWIA event in Fall 2012. It was a hunting and fishing trip in the northwoods of Wisconsin at WWIA's beautiful Camp Hackett. I met the founder John McDaniel and other Purple Hearty veterans. I was in kind of a bad place not too long before this event but was beginning to find my way. WWIA has been a part of helping me find a network of fellow combat wounded veterans to rely upon and help in my healing. I am so grateful to WWIA for helping me that I have become approved by the headquarters to be the "lead associate" on numerous events. Which means I now am helping my fellow brothers and sisters re-adjust and feel the magical healing powers of the great outdoors in their own lives. And not just the outdoors, but the camaraderie and feeling of "belonging" that attending an event provides. WWIA is truly one of the best organizations in the country helping veterans right now and I sincerely hope it is around for decades to come.
