Your generous donation to WWP helps thousands of Wounded Warriors - and their families - as they return home from the current conflicts. Donation options include one-time gifts, the Advance Guard Monthly Giving Program, and more.
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.
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.
The Wounded Warrior Project resiliency program supports the dedicated personnel who care for wounded service members and their families in the initial days and weeks following an injury.
The program aims to show our deep gratitude to the teams at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) and Ramstein Air Base in Germany and other international medical treatment facilities for the care and support they tirelessly provide to the wounded and their families, during an incredibly fragile and scary time. It is important that these brave men and women see the positive long-term impact they have on warriors every day.
These activities include “thank you” posters and video campaigns featuring wounded veterans’ success stories. For hospital staff it can be tremendously fulfilling to see how far an injured service member has come from their first days in the hospital. Other events offered to staff and their families are offsite dinners, game nights, and writers guild events.

MISSION SPECIAL DELIVERY: HARLEY-DAVIDSON PARTNERS WITH WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT; SURPRISES VETS WITH 2015 MOTORCYCLES
MILWAUKEE (Nov. 6, 2014) – Harley-Davidson (NYSE:HOG) made a special delivery of new 2015 motorcycles to six U.S. military veterans. The surprise jumpstarts a new partnership between Harley-Davidson and Wounded Warrior Project to help improve the lives of service men and women living with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Bill Davidson, great-grandson of company co-founder William A. Davidson, along with six Harley-Davidson employees who are veterans, rode the bikes – led by police motorcade – to Wounded Warrior Project headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla. The team of riders gifted the motorcycles to the injured veterans during a press conference scheduled to announce the partnership.
On the eve of Veterans Day, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) calls on Department of Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald to act swiftly and decisively to rebuild trust with veterans and improve access to timely, quality healthcare. We appreciate Secretary McDonald's 100 day quest to listen to stakeholders and truly understand the systemic management, accountability and process issues at VA. However, now it is time to urgently act on what he has learned. It will not be an easy process given the history and culture of VA. Promises have been made in the past with no results, so we sincerely hope Secretary McDonald will deliver, and in a timely manner.
The organizational changes he outlines sound promising, but lack any details or action plan with clearly defined milestone dates and outcomes. Flattening the organization to make it easier for veterans to navigate is important. Eliminating bureaucratic layers and stopping processes that use resources but produce no value or benefit for veterans are positive steps in the right direction, but thus far, the plan gives no concrete information on how he intends to accomplish these objectives.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has dedicated resources to help Alumni with a healthy recovery. Restorewarriors.org features videos of warriors sharing their personal challenges with PTSD and combat stress. Self-help exercises address common topics such as relationships, shame and guilt, and self-esteem.
