Wounded Warrior Project serves more than 75,000 injured service members

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., (July 30, 2015) – Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is officially serving more than 75,000 wounded veterans through its 20 free programs and services offered to engage warriors, nurture their minds and bodies and encourage economic empowerment.

The milestone comes in the wake of the organization announcing its goal to reach 100,000 injured veterans by 2017 and raise $500 million for its Long-Term Support Trust to care for the most severely wounded after their caregivers are no longer able to provide the necessary care. To further support the long-term needs of injured service members, WWP is launching a firstof-its-kind medical care network, Warrior Care Network™, to connect wounded veterans and their families with world-class, individualized mental health care.

“Our entire organization—wounded warriors, their families and caregivers as well as our employees and volunteers— celebrate this monumental Wounded Warrior Project landmark,” said Steve Nardizzi, chief executive officer for WWP. “It’s a testament to the dedication each and every person involved has to our mission to honor and empower the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.”

To date, more than 52,000 service members have been physically wounded in the current conflicts, and it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
