Wounded Warrior Program

Support WWP today!
Dear?Gayle,Learn about more wounded warriorsLast week, you heard?the story of how I was injured on the battlefield in Iraq. I hope you took the quiz that was included in that email and learned more about the programs and services offered by Wounded Warrior Project to help wounded veterans when they return home from service.

Over the past few years,?hundreds of combat-injured troops returning from Iraq and Afghanistan have benefited directly from WWP.?I would like to introduce you to a few of them now. Each has faced a unique set of challenges during their transition back to civilian life.

Jim Mylott

Jim served in the first Gulf War and Kosovo, but it was during his service in Iraq in 2003 that?he suffered a traumatic brain injury that cost him much of his memory. Now a volunteer with WWP’s National Campaign team, Jim believes it is important to get soldiers talking about their experiences to help them heal.?Send Jim a note of thanks.
Ian Lennon

Always known to be a funnyman, Ian joined the Marines in 2000, bringing his lighthearted humor to his fellow troops. Today, more than seven years after?a fuel explosion burned over a third of his body, he still lives to have fun!?Read more about Ian and send him a note of thanks.
Marissa Strock

Marissa joined the Army in 2005 after one year of college.?She lost both legs a year later while serving in Iraq.?Now she is restarting her education through WWP’s TRACK program and living and working alongside other veterans.?Read her advice for wounded soldiers and send her thanks.

Wounded Warrior Project has changed my life and given me opportunities I desperately needed upon returning home?to my family, friends, and community. I hope these stories of other brave men and women have helped familiarize you with what we do here at WWP.

Sincerely,
