The Sacrifice Center is designed to tell the stories of America’s injured service members, starting with the decision to serve and continuing on through injuries to triumphs and empowerment after their injuries. These stories are shared through our programs, which are structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.
All stories shared in the Sacrifice Center are told through the warriors’ eyes. These are their words and their experiences. There are a few stories that go a little more in depth into the serious issues facing our warriors and their families today, including combat stress/post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and those who become full-time caregivers for their loved ones; which WWP remains diligently focused on for the long term.
Also on display is some of the actual body armor which keeps these men and women alive; many of whom would have died in previous conflict without the advancements in body armor. There’s a full combat uniform from the day one of our warriors suffered an IED blast and lived to tell about it. The uniform was donated to Wounded Warrior Project ® (WWP) to aid in sharing the story of these brave men and women.
And it’s not just the body armor, but the medical technologies which are helping to save and then enrich the lives of our warriors. You’ll see several prostetics including a prostetic eye donated by one of our warriors.
Throughout the space, you will find the Wounded Warrior Project logo, which tells the story of one warrior carrying the other off the battlefield. While warriors start on the top, many strive to become the warrior on the bottom, helping newly injured warriors cope and progress through their injuries. We also strive to enlist public support so the warriors are never forgotten and we consider donors and supporters at the bottom of that logo also.
