Wounded Warrior Project Salutes Nurses Serving Injured Service Members

Jacksonville, Fla. (May 6, 2015) – In recognition of National Nurses Day, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is taking the opportunity to show its gratitude for the care that nurses and other medical professionals at home and overseas provide to our nation’s service members injured in the line of duty. 

Landstuhl Regional Medical Center (LRMC) in Germany is one of the first locations service members are transported to when injured in combat. In most cases, these wounded service members arrive to LRMC without any of their personal belongings and unsure of their surroundings. The care of nurses and other medical professionals at LRMC is often the first interaction that sets the wounded at ease, knowing that they are in good hands.

John Rego, U.S. Army veteran, was injured in combat in 2003. While at LRMC, the care he received helped him go from injury on the battlefield to his first step in recovery. “I felt, when I was in Landstuhl, that I was the only patient in the hospital,” said Rego. “I was given so much care and attention that I felt like everybody was there just to make me feel better.”

WWP is committed to showing support for the healthcare professionals caring for our nation’s wounded. Through the WWP Resiliency Program, WWP and the wounded veterans it serves are able to share thanks, encouragement, and much-needed stress relief for the staff who take such great care of our nation’s injured service members. This includes a personal “thank you” video and visit from the injured service members who went through LRMC.

Through its International Services program, WWP continues to serve injured service members internationally in Germany at LRMC and Ramstein Air Base. WWP provides comfort items such as jackets, sweatpants, T-shirts, and blankets to wounded service members before they are flown back to the states, ensuring that the service members and their families are as comfortable as possible.
