"The communities where our warriors live and work have a significant role in their recoveries," said Gary Corless, WWP chief development officer. "Members of the community interact daily with the injured service members we serve, and they see the need is great and growing. That perspective gives them a chance to understand some of the challenges warriors face when returning to civilian life, but also where they can support those Wounded Warrior Project serves. Events like The Big Payback make a significant difference. We're extremely grateful for the past generosity of the Nashville community and are excited about this year's event."
WWP also connects warriors through services focused on mental and physical health and wellness, financial wellness, independence, government relations, and community relations and partnerships.
