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 138-foot former fishing vessel has become a treasure trove of marine life on the ocean floor.

WASHINGTON, D.C. (November 12, 2015) – The nation took a moment this week to honor the men and women who have bravely served our country in wartime and peace. From parades on 5th Avenue in Manhattan to Poyntz Avenue in Manhattan, Kansas, families gathered to salute veterans from all uniformed services. Also this week, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) took the time to help the nation understand some of the challenges facing today’s generation of wounded veterans.
Monday, Nov. 9, WWP partnered with the Center for New American Security (CNAS) to shed light on the 2015 annual WWP Alumni Survey. The survey looks at issues with mental health, physical and economic challenges, as well as gets a pulse on today’s injured service members.
