JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (October 7, 2015) –When Robert Williamson was injured in combat during an extremely difficult deployment in Al Taji, Iraq, in 2004, the physical injuries were extensive: a back injury, an arm injury, and a traumatic brain injury (TBI). However, when he eventually made it home from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, it was the invisible wounds that he struggled with most.
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, Fla. (October 7, 2015) – Dozens of injured veterans got an up-close look at the history of U.S. space travel with a visit to Kennedy Space Center. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) took the group to the visitor’s center for NASA’s Florida home for rocket launches as part of its Alumni program.
The Alumni program creates support through shared experiences, helping support WWP’s mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Through sporting events, gatherings, and an online community, the Alumni program boosts camaraderie and brings injured veterans together to help each other heal. It is one of 20 programs and services made available to wounded service members free of charge.
HOLLYWOOD, CALIF. (October 5, 2015) – Nearly a dozen wounded veterans saddled up to experience the views around Los Angeles on horseback.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) hosted the ride through Griffith Park as part of its Alumni program. The goal of the program is to help create support through shared experiences. Whether it is a horseback ride, a nature hike, or group tickets to a sporting event, the WWP Alumni program brings injured veterans together to help in the healing process. WWP provides 20 programs and services to wounded service members, free of charge.
BATON ROUGE, LA. (October 2, 2015) – One by one, wounded veterans boarded the USS Kidd along the banks of the Mississippi River. The Fletcher-class destroyer’s 38 caliber gun mounts still face the bow and the stern of the 72-year-old ship. One of the steam silos still shows the image of Captain William Kidd, a pirate chosen as a mascot for the ship during its maiden voyage. The USS Kidd is actually named for Rear Admiral Isaac Campbell Kidd.
The USS Kidd is a memorial to the USS Navy spirit, a reminder of the response following Pearl Harbor. The Navy launched the Kidd just more than 15 months after Japan bombed the Navy’s westernmost fleet. That attack was the catalyst that marked the U.S. entrance into World War II.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN NATIONAL PARK, COLO.(October 1, 2015) – Nearly a dozen wounded veterans hiked miles along the Continental Divide Trail, experiencing the breath-taking views you can only experience from atop mountains. The hike and camping trip gave the injured service members not only a chance to enjoy nature, but also an opportunity to spend time and heal with fellow veterans.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) believes in creating support through shared experiences. The WWP Alumni program brings wounded veterans together for outdoor events, sports, and even an online community to help grow that support. WWP considers veterans Alumni because of the sacrifices they have made for our country. There are no membership dues for Alumni; they paid those on the battlefield. The Alumni program is one of 20 free programs and services offered by WWP.
