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.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.(August 25, 2015) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is officially serving more than 400 of this generation’s most seriously injured veterans and their caregivers through its Independence Program (IP), an innovative program created to help injured service members and veterans design their own paths from surviving to thriving.
IP is a partnership between WWP, the warrior, and his or her family or caregiver, and is uniquely structured to adapt to their ever-changing needs. IP pairs warriors who rely on their families and/or caregivers because of moderate-to-severe brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, or other neurological conditions with a specialized case manager to develop a personalized plan to restore meaningful levels of activity, purpose, and independence into their daily lives. For many, this is an opportunity to participate in the types of daily tasks and meaningful activities others take for granted.
WAIKIKI, Hawaii (August 21, 2015) – Injured veterans will help launch Duke’s OceanFest this weekend during the Na Koa Wounded Warrior Regatta. The event features 75 teams of canoers taking part in a series of races at Waikiki Beach at Fort DeRussy. Three of the four divisions of the regatta feature veterans.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is taking part in the regatta to encourage engagement and physical health and wellness. Engagement is a key pillar of the WWP mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Injured veterans can build a network of support through shared experiences. Physical Health & Wellness is one of 20 free programs offered to wounded veterans to help reduce stress and combat depression. It also promotes an overall healthy and active lifestyle by encouraging participation in fun, educational activities.
KODIAK, Alaska (August 17, 2015) – After a week in the Alaskan wilderness, ten wounded veterans are back home. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) took the injured service members to Kodiak, Alaska for the tenth year in a row, for fishing, sight-seeing, and camaraderie.
WWP seeks to increase the engagement of injured service members as part of its Alumni Program, designed to provide support through shared experiences. The Alumni Program is one of 20 inclusive programs designed specifically for wounded veterans, their families, and caregivers, all provided free of charge.
WWP Alumnus Nathan Dee, who is originally from Alaska, spoke highly of the Kodiak experience. “I hardly ever get to go home to Alaska and fish like that. It brought back a lot of memories from my childhood,” Dee said.
