During the week of Veterans Day, warriors hiked 17 miles to raise awareness for veteran suicide. 17 signifies the number of veterans that take their lives every day.

A Long-Awaited Victory for Veterans: Honoring Our PACT Act

At a White House ceremony Aug. 10, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) applauded President Joe Biden's signing of the SFC Heath Robinson Honoring Our PACT Act. The legislation will guarantee care and benefits for veterans who suffer the ill effects of their exposure to burn pits and other toxins while serving America.

WWP Honor Our PACT Act News Conference

Exposure to burn pits and other environmental hazards is a serious health issue for many post-9/11 veterans. More than 3 million post-9/11 veterans were potentially exposed to toxic substances during overseas deployments. Now, far too many of them are developing cancers, autoimmune disorders, skin diseases, respiratory illnesses, and other conditions. We strongly support the Honoring our Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act. This important legislation will give veterans access to the health care and benefits they have earned through their service to our nation.
