Wounded Warriors who incurred service-connected injuries or illness on or after September 11, 2001 are eligible for the WWP Alumni program. No dues here - you paid those on the battlefield. Check out all the benefits and register today.
When a warrior faces challenges, the family experiences those challenges along with their warrior. We support family members who suddenly find they are serving as full-time supporters or caregivers.

HONOLULU, Hawaii. (February 2, 2016) – A group of wounded veterans toured Kualoa Ranch on Oahu Island recently. You may not recognize the name, but the location was used in “Jurassic Park,” “Godzilla,” “Windtalkers,” and many other movies and television shows.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) took these injured veterans touring on all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) to help build camaraderie. WWP sees engagement as a key pillar in recovery for wounded veterans. Through shared experiences-- such as sporting events, social gatherings, or ATV tours-- injured service members can build their own network of support. WWP offers 20 free programs and services to help wounded veterans in their recovery.
MARICOPA, Ariz. (February 5, 2016) – After serving her country in the Navy, and a career flying with a major airline, Nik Alfred has accomplished a lot in her life, but she experienced a first - flying in a hang glider.
Nik joined a group of wounded veterans at Phoenix Regional Airport in Maricopa to take flight.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) provided injured veterans the opportunity to engage with other wounded service members. WWP sees these opportunities as an important part of a wounded veteran’s recovery. Through shared experiences, injured service members can build a support structure to help in times of need.
BIG SKY, Mont. (February 5, 2016) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently gave wounded veterans the opportunity to enjoy an evening of food, music, silent auctions, and raffles at the Big Hearts Under the Big Sky banquet. WWP donated tickets to the 24 Alumni and family members who attended, to support the Montana Outfitters and Guides Association (MOGA).
“The event was a benefit dinner for Montana Outfitters and Guides Association to continue giving back to those who are deserving,” said Marine Corps Veteran and WWP Alumnus Michael Elliot. “They’ve helped veterans for years and given them a chance to explore the outdoors. It’s a great cause.”
MARION, Ala.(February 4, 2016) – A group of wounded veterans got together recently to enjoy a four-day hunting trip, planned by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).
Many wounded service members face similar challenges adjusting to their injuries and civilian life. The WWP Alumni program creates support through shared experiences and builds camaraderie by bringing injured veterans together. By bonding through events and programs, these veterans learn they are not alone. The WWP Alumni program is one of 20 life-saving programs and services offered free of charge to wounded service members, their caregivers, and families.
