Wounded Warriors Project



MISSION

The mission of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.

PURPOSE

To raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

HISTORY

Wounded Warrior Project began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to provide comfort items to wounded service members has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they recover and transition back to civilian life. Thousands of injured warriors and caregivers receive support each year through WWP programs designed to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment.

Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization.
