Wounded Warrior Project Veterans Connect During Baseball Stadium Tour

ARLINGTON, Texas, March 24, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A new season of Major League Baseball is just around the corner, and nearly 50,000 Texans will once again call Globe Life Park their home away from home. But it was Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) veterans who recently received a behind-the-scenes tour.

While they explored the home of the Texas Rangers, warriors reaped the benefits of connecting with their fellow service members. Warriors and guests learned about the stadium's history as they were led through the inner workings of the facility.

"I am a huge Rangers fan, so it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be able to see the lesser-known areas of the park," said Army veteran Donnie Whitley. "But the best part was spending time with other veterans. I even made friends with a few warriors, and we exchanged numbers so we can stay in touch."

WWP program events reintroduce warriors and their families to the bonds experienced during military service. The 2016 WWP Annual Warrior Survey highlights the importance of opportunities for connection at WWP outreach events, which support the long-term recovery of warriors in environments that accommodate physical injuries and social anxieties.  

Over a post-tour barbecue dinner, staff members interacted with attendees and advised them of additional services to assist in their recovery processes. WWP serves warriors through programs that help them with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term care for the most seriously wounded. Programs and resources are free of charge to those WWP serves thanks to generous donors. Warriors are empowered to live life on their own terms, mentor fellow veterans and service members, and embody the WWP logo by carrying one another along a path toward recovery.

"What I loved about the military was the closeness of the service members," Donnie said. "Wounded Warrior Project keeps that closeness going and helps it stay strong."
