ATLANTA (July 25, 2016) – America’s warriors have demonstrated time and time again that they are givers. Their sacrifices while serving in the military are proof of this, but it was also apparent at a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) function at Habitat ReStore.
A group of injured veterans gathered to take on various duties at the store, a nonprofit home improvement and donation center that is part of Habitat for Humanity. It sells new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, and building materials. Warriors assisted in assorted positions, which included coordinating donations, organizing stock, and assisting customers.

FOX, Ala. (July 20, 2016) – During a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) program gathering, wounded veterans experienced the Alaskan wilderness up-close-and-personal. These warriors learned firsthand what is possible at social events that get them out of the house and push their physical capabilities in a picturesque outdoor environment.
Participants traversed their way through the Wickersham Dome Trail of the White Mountains, home to dall sheep, caribou, and several other wildlife species. Just north of Fairbanks, the roads to these trails have been featured on the show “Ice Road Truckers.”
SAVAGE, Md. (July 19, 2016) – Long before people were using smartphones to catch Pokemon in the streets with Pokemon Go, tech-savvy outdoorsmen were using GPS tracking devices to locate real hidden treasures in the world around them – a pastime known as geocaching. Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently hosted a geocaching event in the Wincopin Trail system of Savage Park.
Warriors spent the morning crisscrossing the trails and finding items using high-tech GPS gear, all while getting to know fellow veterans in their local area.
