Wounded Warrior Project Helping Veterans Recover Step-By-Step
FAYETTEVILLE, N.C., June 11, 2018 -- Talking to John Goubeaux is a lesson in positivity, but it almost wasn't. John nearly died seven years ago. He will forever have the scars from that day – visible and invisible.
During a steaming summer day in 2011, as he stood on the back of a truck working on a plane, the stifling heat overtook the Air Force veteran. He fell, landing head-first on concrete, shattering part of his skull.
Warriors Cook Up Connections At Barbecuing Class
KNIGHTDALE, N.C., June 7, 2018 -- Injured veterans and their guests picked up barbecue tips and techniques from an award-winning pitmaster during a recent cooking class with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).
"Learning from a professional barbecue pitmaster motivated me to sign up," said National Guard veteran Joseph Beemer. "There were some warriors I know who had attended this event before, so I knew it was going to be an inspirational class."
Pitmaster and owner of Prime Barbecue, Christopher Prieto, taught the class how to cook tacos three ways – using pulled pork, pulled chicken, and pork belly. Once they finished preparing their taco creations, warriors and guests sat down and enjoyed the feast while getting to know one another better.
Veterans' Charity Helps Warriors Enjoy A Day Of Equine Therapy With Family
BAY MINETTE, Ala., June 7, 2018 -- Injured veterans spent time with horses during a family equine day with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). Interacting with these majestic animals can help warriors on their journeys to recovery. Spending time with animals has been known to improve self-confidence, sense of well-being, and communication with friends and family.
"Some of my peers were there," said Army veteran Krystal Watts, "and we thought the equine therapy gave us an open and direct approach to face our fears of the past, present, and future. We were excited to be outdoors in a safe environment."
Warriors and their families learned the basics of equine therapy during some groundwork and enjoyed quality time with the horses on a beautiful local ranch.
