Wounded Warrior Project
What is it?
Wounded Warrior Project is a famous organization dedicated to serving our military as they transition from the active battlefield back to their homes and families. Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is dedicated to helping soldiers both with their visible wounds and the invisible wounds.
“Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) 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.” Excerpt from Wounded Warrior’s Website “Who We Serve.”
Beyond helping thousands of our warriors with their physical needs such as physical therapy, career training, and even connecting warriors together WWP helps with the hidden wounds such as depression and brain injuries.
“...over 48,000 servicemen and women have been physically injured in the recent military conflicts.
In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.” -Excerpt from Wounded Warrior’s Website.
Wounded Warrior Project is determined to bring encouragement, dignity, and honor back into the daily lives of our soldiers as they adjust to their new normal. WWP does this through a variety of programs and services catering to the needs of our veterans including community projects, physical therapy, and counseling.
“With the mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors, WWP is the hand extended to encourage warriors as they adjust to their new normal and achieve new triumphs. Offering a variety of programs and services, WWP is equipped to serve warriors with every type of injury – from the physical to the invisible wounds of war.” - Excerpt from Wounded Warrior’s Website
Why We Care
Wounded Warrior Project is an organization helping those who have given so much to our country. At The Embroidery Store we feel it is important to celebrate the soldier and this is our way of celebrating the soldiers, and their families that have sacrificed so much.
We like so many organizations have employees whose family members serve in our military and we feel honored to be able to contribute to an organization that hits a little closer to home. We look forward to continue working with WWP as a sponsor and continuing to help those who have given so much.
