  • Wounded Warrior Project Identifies 4 Benefits Of Telephonic Emotional Support

    JACKSONVILLE, Fla., March 28, 2017 -- With more than 2.4 million service members having deployed as part of the Global War on Terrorism, the number of warriors returning home with invisible injuries is staggering at an estimated 400,000. Those living with invisible wounds of war, including combat stress, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), tend to isolate themselves to avoid triggers. But seclusion only heightens the issues, leading to feelings of defeat, destruction, and destitution – all of which obstruct the road to recovery.

    Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently launched one of its highly popular pilot programs, WWP Talk. It serves as a mental health support line that is an invaluable, non-clinical form of emotional support for warriors, family members, and caregivers.

  • Wounded Warrior Project Veterans Connect Over Healthy Cooking

    SAN ANTONIO, March 27, 2017 -- Local grocer H-E-B recently opened the doors of its culinary center and cooking school to Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) veterans for a healthy cooking class. As warriors learned to create nutritious home-cooked meals without compromising flavor, they experienced the benefits of getting out of the house and connecting with fellow service members.

    With cookout season on the horizon, experienced chefs taught warriors and guests a health-conscious spin on barbecue. Veterans learned preparation techniques for lean meats and vegetables. For dessert, the class prepared grilled pineapple with homemade ice cream. The hands-on lesson was part of WWP's Physical Health and Wellness program, which is designed to reduce stress and promote healthy and active lifestyles for warriors and family members.

  • Wounded Warrior Project Helps Local Warriors With VA Benefit Compensation

    SAN ANTONIO, March 27, 2017 -- Veterans with service-related health issues were recently invited to a Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Benefits Claims Day. This innovative gathering helps warriors quickly obtain needed care by placing them face-to-face with a WWP staff member and a Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) representative, who directly impacts the outcome of medical claims.

    With long-term financial and health support playing a critical, empowering role in the recovery process, WWP's Benefits Service program helps injured veterans navigate the complexities of the Department of Defense and VA. With the support of generous donors, WWP reaches out to local communities, filing thousands of claims each year and immediately changing the lives of injured veterans, their families, and caregivers.

  • Wounded Warrior Project Veterans Heal By Brush

    TAMPA, Fla., March 27, 2017 -- First, a line of bright green streaked across a field of white. A darker shade of green followed, and next, a dark shade of blue. Brush strokes connected the colors and stretched them to the other side of the canvas, creating a patch of grass that started a special St. Patrick's Day-themed painting.

    Wounded warrior Andrew Larocca and artist Craig Todd worked together as this masterpiece took shape during art therapy at the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) office in Tampa recently. When the pair finished, they showed off the painting featuring the American flag over a green, grassy field with shamrocks. And for the warriors, there are therapeutic benefits.
