JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 5, 2020 -- Some of the nation's most severely wounded warriors are facing unique challenges because of the coronavirus pandemic. While these warriors are encountering the same problems as others finding hygiene and medical items, they remain at an elevated risk without the needed supplies.
These men and women suffered severe injuries and now live with the help of a family caregiver. Many also receive assistance and services from Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and its Independence Program. That program serves nearly 700 warriors and 500 caregivers around the nation — each living with moderate to severe traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, or a neurological condition.
