Today is a special day for our Veterans and their families. To thank and recognize these deserving men and women for their sacrifices is a critical mission for our nation. We can not forget them after they have served us so well. One great program you should consider supporting on this day of recognition is the Wounded Warrior program.
The service medical systems and the Veteran Affairs folks do a great job in most cases but they need help. The support for our injured men and women needs to be long term and caring! Community and local support is critical to this effort. The Wounded Warrior program’s mission is to:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women,
- To help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of severely injured service members.
Wounded Warrior information can be found at their website located at Wounded Warrior Project. The site has sections on how to be a sponsor, volunteering and other ways to get involved! If you want to expand your support and participation in a program that cares about and supports the troops year round, give them a shout!
