Wounded Warrior Project Serving More Warriors Through Its Telephonic Care Program

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 16, 2020 -- Injured veterans and their family members deal with the long-term effects of their injuries every day, many of which have been compounded by the pandemic. Among those responding to a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) survey, 61% of warriors feel more disconnected from their family, friends, or community. These veterans and family members need someone to talk to, and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is here to listen -- serving more warriors than ever before through its telephonic mental health phone support line, WWP Talk.

WWP Talk provides a safe, nonjudgmental outlet to warriors and family members managing PTSD, anxiety, and other invisible wounds of war. Program participants receive weekly calls from the same WWP teammate at the same pre-established day and time.

WWP Responds to Troubling Findings Regarding Female Veteran Care at VA

Over the last year, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has made significant strides in recognizing the unique needs of women veterans and trying to address the fact that one in four women veterans report experiencing harassment when visiting VA health care facilities.  

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) values the many sacrifices of all women who have served and is extremely concerned with the findings issued last week by VA’s Office of Inspector General. All women veterans who visit VA facilities deserve to feel safe and receive the highest quality of care. When women step forward with allegations of sexual harassment or assault, each report should be thoroughly investigated.

Wounded Warrior Project Addresses Barriers Faced by Veterans Exposed to Toxicants

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14, 2020 -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently testified about the needs of veterans who are ill because of exposure to toxicants while in service and the challenges they experience filing for disability compensation with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). WWP Senior National Service Officer Anita Ritchie testified before the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, Subcommittee on Disability Assistance and Memorial Affairs.

"We cannot ignore the obvious correlation between certain toxic exposures and illnesses with no reasonable explanation for onset," Ritchie said. "We have learned from previous generations of veterans how to identify the critical improvements that must be undertaken if we are to prevent history from repeating itself. Without providing access to care and tools to help verify exposures, or establishing presumptions based on the use of existing federally funded research, we may already know what is to come."
