Review for Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation Inc, Apollo Beach, FL, USA
My name is Doug Alderton, while in service in Afghanistan doing rout clearance missions we came under heavy attack which ended in losing our truck commander Sgt Ryan Adams and severely injuring my self and many others in our convoy. After being medically retired from the military I like many others felt lost. I had lost not only my position with the military but also the brotherhood. This built onto the already many physical and mental injuries and made the depression a constant in my life. With the invite of a close friend Matt Tennessen to attend a WWIA event and just try and be around others who were dealing with the same issues my eyes were opened and I was now recharged knowing I wasn't alone in this battle in life. The men and women if WWIA are truly giving vets a chance to be part of a new brother/sister hood of peers who know what you are dealing with and giving us the opportunity to recover spending time together and doing events that show we can still do and enjoy life events. Thank you WWIA!
