"Get out there. Volunteer. Make friends.
Make connections. You’re not alone."
"Take each day as it comes. Find out
what works for you and go with it."
"I’ve had injuries that made things
difficult, but I still succeed."

and learn how to walk again."

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.
You can help Wounded Warrior Project ® honor and empower Wounded Warriors by hosting a Proud Supporter event, volunteering your time, sending a Thank You note to an injured service member, and much more.
Wounded Warrior Project® is concerned about the impact the furloughs of over 2,300 civilian employees could have on the quality and continuity of care for injured service members at Walter Reed. We recognize military personnel will step in to support the furloughs of Walter Reed’s staff; however, this decision indicates a backtracking on assurances made by the Department of Defense to Congress that warrior care will not be affected by budget cuts. We believe it is wrong to increase the burden on the military personnel at Walter Reed, many of whom have endured multiple deployments as well. This is a step in the wrong direction for our nation’s injured service members, whose service and sacrifice deserve more.
The WWP Carry Forward Awards recognize individuals who are making a difference in the lives of this generation of wounded service members.
Interested in sponsoring this event and celebrating the friends of Wounded Warrior Project®? Sponsorship opportunities are now available online.
Public online voting for the 2013 winners to be recognized at the event will take place July 1 - 31. Remember to always be on the lookout for individuals who care enough about wounded service members, WWP, and our programs to passionately do something to help. Be sure to nominate them in 2014!
When a warrior faces challenges, the family experiences these challenges along with the warrior. The stress is real. And so is the support of Wounded Warrior Project. We reach out to family members who find themselves serving as full-time supporters or caregivers. WWP offers Family Support Retreats and encourages them to check out restorewarriors.org as a resource for PTSD and mental health information.
We understand these loved ones need a break now and then, and our Family Support Retreat weekends provide time for them to rest and reflect in a supportive environment of peers. Sharing strategies for coping and overcoming obstacles is a valuable part of our retreats. And a feeling of fellowship reminds family members they are not alone.
