Transitioning from military to civilian life is a journey, and that journey is different for every veteran. We offer a wide range of free programs and services to support you no matter what your journey looks like.


Affected by your service on or after September 11, 2001? We can help. Physical or invisible, your needs matter and we have a community of donors, partners, employees and fellow warriors to make sure you’re not alone.


Each day, our warriors set ambitious goals and we celebrate their accomplishments. Where do you see yourself? Together we'll get you there because you have a bright future to look forward to.


“If I can be a part of an organization that helps people heal and find peace, then the end of my service is not the end. I’m just serving in a new way now.”

By donating, fundraising, or spreading the word, you can help our warriors get back on track and become a positive force in their communities.


“There are so many wounded veterans out there who need help and support. The more people who help, the more motivated I get to be a better person.”

Veteran Credits Wounded Warrior Project, Positive Attitude for Landing Dream Job

HONOLULU, Dec. 12, 2018 -- Siaipili "Junior" Pouso'o served 20 years in the United States Marine Corps and Army before retiring and transitioning back to civilian life. His goal was to work with the federal government but found he was having difficulty getting through the application and interview process.

"I transitioned out of the military from Fort Bliss, Texas, and moved back home to Hawaii," said Junior.  "During this time, I was trying to connect with friends and organizations that helped veterans get into the civilian workforce. I went on many interviews for positions that I was referred to with no success." 


Wounded Warriors Connect With Each Other and Nature

HOUSTON, Dec. 10, 2018 -- Wounded warriors and their families spent time connecting with each other and helping their community at a local nonprofit during an activity organized by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The group came together at Hope Farms, a place where community members reconnect with nature.  "I enjoyed the calming environment and being able to interact with Mother Nature," said Army veteran Jose Ayala, who has participated in several activities with WWP. "The event organizers really accommodated us and asked about any physical limitations we might have. For me, it was beautiful; I don't mind getting a little dirty."

The veterans picked vegetables and pulled weeds at the urban farm. WWP helps injured veterans and their families learn to make healthy transitions, connect with other veterans, and contribute to their communities.


Wounded Warrior Project Recognized at Travis Manion Foundation Gala

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7, 2018 -- At the 7th annual Travis Manion Foundation (TMF) Gala in Philadelphia, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) was honored with the 2018 Community Leadership Award. WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington was in attendance to receive the award on behalf of WWP, where he praised TMF for its work in building resilient networks of local community support and character development across the nation.

"Travis Manion Foundation understands that the bonds that warriors had during their military service are unlike any other," said Linnington. "This year, the total number of young adults reached by Travis Manion Foundation's Character Does Matter program passed 250,000, most of whom are between the ages of 12 and 18. Those kids and young adults have been connected with a positive role model in the form of a veteran or family member of the fallen. I want to say thank you to Travis Manion Foundation for all they do to keep Travis' legacy of 'If Not Me, Then Who' and Brendan's legacy of 'Be Strong, Be Accountable, and Never Complain' alive. Thank you for your commitment to instill character and inculcate a sense of service in the next generation of Americans."


Wounded Warriors Cook Up Some Camaraderie and Good Eats

SARASOTA, Fla., Dec. 5, 2018 -- Wounded warriors and their families crafted healthy dishes during a cooking class organized by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) at a grocery store.

"I liked that everyone had a chance to get involved and learn something," said Army veteran Benjamin Hart. "The class was fun. People started out quiet, and toward the middle and the end everyone was talking and sharing. It was a good experience."

Participants enjoyed both the social aspect of the class and the healthy cooking. They marinated chicken and flank steak, prepared side dishes, and made dessert. They, of course, got to enjoy the good food they prepared.
