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

Rating: 5 stars  

The WWIAF (Wounded Warriors In Action Foundation) is a mission driven Foundation with all the right motives. After serving in the US Army and struggling after Deployment to Iraq where I was struck with Enemy Mortar Shrapnel, civilian life and full time employment was just covering up the wounds that were held deep within. My physical scars had healed but emotionally my body was a wreck. In 2011, I received a phone call from WWIAF HQ, and was asked to attend a Hunting Event in Missouri. The call came only two days after being released from the VA Medical Center's psychiatric ward where I was seeking "help". Someone was truly looking out for me, because the event in Missouri showed me the camaraderie, love and inner peace I felt during service. The brotherhood and bond amongst one-another was real again. The network of support that the Foundation has created is phenomenal. Through the power of the outdoors and how its ability to naturally heal from within, the WWIAF and I are now eternally bonded. For the past 6 years I have been an active volunteer and owe my gratitude to John McDaniel, the founder, a brother in arms, my friend. I highly recommend being a part of this Foundation as it is much more than just a hunt or fishing trip, it is a true resource for continuing life.
