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's Program Grants team launched the first ever Grantee Reunion Summit this week with support from WWP’s Public Relations and Social Media teams.
WWP invited grantees from the Fall 2013 grant cycle to DC to share success stories from their grant year, best practices, lessons learned, and opportunities for collaboration. The summit served as a platform for networking, educating one another about VSOs across the country, and ultimately fostering connections between the grantees.
Looking Back and Moving Forward: New Year, Same Mission
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (January 6, 2015) – 2014 has truly been a year to remember for Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), and 2015 promises to be even more memorable as WWP continues in its commitment to honor and empower this generation of injured service members. As the organization looks ahead to serving more warriors, caregivers, and their families in the year to come, it is important to reflect on the past year and all the organization was able to accomplish with the support of a grateful nation.
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.

Based on the responses of more than 21,000 injured veterans, the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) 2014 Alumni Survey results include the largest sample size of service members injured since 9/11 and is the most statistically relevant survey response of that population to date.
