Wounded Warriors Show Creativity through Painting
SOUTH CHINA, Maine, Feb. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Injured veterans and their families recently learned how to create one-of-a-kind paintings with the help of local artists. They connected with one another and painted winter-themed scenes with Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP).
"The paint night was an event we've never done before as a couple, and we thoroughly enjoyed spending that time together," said Jennifer Hall, wife of Army veteran Joseph. "Our schedules are always so full that we seldom take time to do something together. We learned a little more about one another and now have a great memory to hang on the wall from the event."
Connecting with family and other veterans can help injured warriors cope with stress and emotional concerns. In a WWP survey (https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/survey) of the injured warriors it serves, more than half of survey respondents (51.6 percent) expressed they talk with fellow veterans to address their mental health issues.
"We are so very grateful for the opportunities Wounded Warrior Project has given our family, and Joseph and I as a couple, to enjoy some time together," Jennifer said.
WWP serves warriors by connecting them with one another and their communities and focusing on mental and physical health and wellness, financial wellness, independence, government relations, and community relations and partnerships. Programs and resources are free of charge to those WWP serves thanks to generous donors. Warriors are empowered to live life on their terms, mentor fellow veterans and service members, and embody the WWP logo by carrying one another along a path toward recovery.
