“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.”

Injured Veterans Step Back In History On Tampa Mafia Walking Tour
TAMPA, Fla., July 10, 2018 -- Warriors and guests toured historic Ybor City during a recent Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) event. The area is rich with crime history and the sorted exploits of notorious public enemies.
"I love historical information and doing things with Wounded Warrior Project," said Army veteran Cheryl Caves. "I feel safe with them."

Bullseye! Wounded Warriors Find Peer Support At Archery Event
DUNCANSVILLE, Pa., July 6, 2018 -- Injured veterans and their guests gathered to share in camaraderie, while testing their skills at an archery event with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).
"As an active bow hunter, I got in some great practice and made a few new friends," said Army National Guard veteran Gene Frye. "The event was an opportunity to talk with other veterans who share similar experiences as me."
Isolation is one of the most significant struggles wounded warriors deal with after serving their country. It can be difficult knowing how to overcome that challenge and rekindle bonds similar to those formed in the military. WWP programs offer settings that provide opportunities for warriors to experience veteran peer support.
Warrior Regains His Family With Help From Veterans Charity
TALLAHASSEE, Fla., July 5, 2018 -- Bill Geiger credits Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) with helping save his family. The military police officer's reactions to post-traumatic stress and other issues from multiple deployments created a chasm in his home life.
"Life changed quite drastically," Bill said. "I was just angry, depressed, anxious, just the whole spectrum of the emotions. In my mind, I was somewhat OK; I didn't mind being that angry."
But his wife and children saw that anger differently.
"It wasn't until I found out how badly those emotions were affecting my family that I realized something was wrong."
Warriors Connect During Rock Climbing With Veterans Charity
SAN DIEGO, July 3, 2018 -- Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) recently gave warriors and their guests the opportunity to incorporate the exhilarating sport of indoor rock climbing in their physical fitness routines.
"I've always enjoyed rock climbing, but after I left the military, I hadn't had a chance to pick it back up again," said Navy veteran Christina Danley. "My oldest son loves to climb anything, so I thought it would be fun to do together. I enjoyed watching him have fun more than anything."
WWP connects warriors with one another, their families, and communities. It serves warriors through lifesaving programs and services targeting mental and physical health, career and benefits counseling, and support for the most severely wounded. And WWP empowers warriors to mentor other veterans and live life on their terms.
