The supporters of Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) come from all walks of life and are of all ages, and their generosity allows WWP to provide free, life-changing programs and services to injured veterans, their caregivers, and family members. Recently, Ashley Walls shared her musical talents as a way to raise awareness and support for the warriors WWP serves. She wrote and released a song called "Don't Go," which she says was inspired by remembering those who have fought – and died – overseas.
"I wanted to show through song how much our soldiers and their families sacrifice for our freedom," Ashley said. "And I wanted to make sure those who serve our country are never forgotten and know how much they're appreciated."
Ashley, like many of WWP's young supporters, has friends and family in the military. Her father, grandfathers, and all her uncles served in various branches of service, along with some of her friends from high school who went on to join the Army and Air Force.
"It means everything to me," Ashley said. "They risk their lives for our freedom, and it is something I can never repay them for. I am hoping my music will show them that we care, support, and love them. It's important to shine a light on everything they do for our country and make sure they are appreciated. I hope my music and song 'Don't Go' will do that. It is really important that we make sure our soldiers are well taken care of while they are serving and also when they come back as well! I have always supported Wounded Warrior Project, for just that reason."
"Don't Go" can be heard on Ashley's YouTube page. Those wanting to get involved can support warriors served by WWP by registering as a Proud Supporter on the Give Back page of WWP's website. Students can also start a Student Ambassadors fundraising campaign.
