BENEFITING: WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT
EVENT DATE: Nov 11, 2014
A CAUSE WORTHY OF YOUR SUPPORT
When you support Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), you’re supporting an organization whose broad appeal reaches across demographic, geographic, and political boundaries. They are an apolitical organization by design. For WWP, it’s not about the war; it’s about the warrior.
Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. With advancements in battlefield medicine and body armor, an unprecedented percentage of service members are surviving severe wounds or injuries. For every US soldier killed in World Wars I and II, there were 1.7 soldiers wounded. In Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom, for every US soldier killed, seven are wounded.
