In the heart of the nation’s capital, the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) team in Washington, DC, continues to provide life-saving and impactful support. Here is a snapshot of the work they’ve been doing on behalf of warriors in their area:
The Physical Health and Wellness (PH&W) team hosts a monthly workout at the Baltimore, Maryland, headquarters of Under Armour®. Roughly 40 warriors, family members, and guests attend each event and participate in exercises adaptable to every participant’s needs.
WWP warriors teamed with The Mission Continues, Team Rubicon, and Team Red, White & Blue for a day of city beautification in Baltimore.
Warriors participated in the Washington, DC, Theatre Lab’s Life Stories program, which teaches acting, storytelling, screenwriting, and directing. Self-expression of one’s experiences can provide a positive outlet, especially for combat veterans.
Eighteen warriors and family support members enjoyed an introduction to beekeeping workshop hosted by the University of Maryland’s Institute of Applied Agriculture. Guests left with new skills and knowledge about beekeeping and will be able to use that knowledge toward a new hobby or starting a small business.
Warriors and their families made posters to greet the first-ever all-female Honor Flight, which brings veterans to Washington, DC, to visit memorials and monuments dedicated to them and their fellow warriors. A group of female warriors greeted the flight at Ronald Reagan Washington International Airport and joined the WWII veterans from the Honor Flight for a ceremony at the Women in Military Service for America Memorial.
