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.
Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is excited to announce the launch of the sixth Annual WWP Alumni Survey. The information gathered from this year’s survey is critical to fulfilling our mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Based on previous surveys, WWP has improved existing programs and developed new ones for warriors, family members, and caregivers. We will use the results of the 2015 survey to do the same.
You should receive an email in mid-March with your individualized survey link. As a token of our appreciation for taking the time to complete the survey, you will receive a WWP signature key ring!
Please contact the WWP Resource Center with any questions regarding the 2015 WWP Alumni Survey at 888.WWP.ALUM (997.2586) or email@example.com.

Washington, D.C. (February 27, 2015) – Senator Jon Tester (D-MT) today introduced the Veterans Education Empowerment Act, a bill that would reauthorize a Department of Education (ED) grant program to help institutions of higher education establish, maintain, and improve veteran student centers – dedicated spaces on a college or university campus that provide student veterans or eligible family members with a meeting space and centralized office for services. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is proud to support this bill.
“We thank Senator Tester for his leadership in recognizing the challenges that injured veterans face as they attempt to adjust from active duty military life to life on a college campus,” said Jeremy Chwat, chief program officer at WWP. “We believe these grants will provide the resources needed on campus to help make the transition to college more successful for this generation of wounded warriors.”
Jacksonville, FL (February 12, 2015) – The Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) produced documentary mini-series “Wounded: The Battle Back Home” will become available on Internet television network Netflix starting Sunday, February 15, 2015. The project, produced in conjunction with Austin-based Flow Nonfiction, was created to commemorate the 10th anniversary of WWP and focuses on issues of critical importance to this generation of injured service members and their families through personal stories of struggle and resiliency.
“Wounded: The Battle Back Home” is a documentary series that brings to life the experiences of this generation of wounded veterans as they battle both the visible and invisible wounds of war. Each episode of the series allows viewers to follow these inspiring individuals as they navigate their post-war lives in a society that struggles to understand them and a system that is failing to support them. In addition to physical injuries, the series highlights the invisible wounds that our nation’s service members battle as they transition from the military to civilian life, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST).
Washington, D.C. (February 12, 2015) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) joined President Obama, veterans, and mental health advocates today at the White House for the signing of the Clay Hunt Suicide Prevention for American Veterans Act (SAV Act), which will help provide better support to injured veterans suffering from the invisible wounds of war, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
WWP is encouraged to see overwhelmingly bipartisan progress in efforts to improve mental health care and services and suicide prevention programs at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and Department of Defense (DoD). WWP worked closely with members of Congress to include provisions that authorize the VA to conduct a student loan repayment pilot program aimed at recruiting and retaining psychiatrists, and to establish a peer support and community outreach pilot program to assist transitioning service members with accessing VA mental health care services.
Washington, D.C. (February 11, 2015) – Senator Patty Murray (D-WA) today introduced the Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act of 2015, a bill that would expand the treatment and care at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA); provide fertility treatment for spouses of severely wounded veterans; provide adoption assistance for veteran families; and make permanent a veterans child care services pilot program at VA. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is proud to support this bill.
“We thank Senator Murray for her leadership in recognizing the devastating toll that service-incurred injuries can have on a warrior or spouse’s ability to start a family,” said Charlie Abell, executive vice president of Policy and Government Affairs at WWP. “In our decade-long experience working daily with this generation of wounded warriors, we know there is a need to provide reproductive services and adoption assistance to assist in helping severely wounded, ill, or injured veterans with fertility conditions to have families.”
