'Inside Edition' Spotlights Wounded Veteran

Story Looks at Transition and Help from Wounded Warrior Project

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Dec. 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- A female Army veteran will share her story of serving in Iraq and facing challenges when she returned home, during an interview on "Inside Edition."

Lisa Crutch and her story with Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

Lisa Crutch was seriously injured in a vehicle crash in Iraq in 2004. The wreck crushed her legs and left her with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that stole many of her memories.

"Inside Edition" focuses not only on Lisa's injuries and transition back to civilian life, but also how she has found success. By finding an organization like Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), Lisa is addressing her TBI and creating new memories with family and friends.

"Wounded Warrior Project gave me the tools to transition from Sergeant Crutch back to Lisa," she said. "It was easy to go from Lisa to Sergeant Crutch, but without Wounded Warrior Project I don't know if I would have made it back."

WWP is committed to helping wounded veterans achieve their highest ambition. When a veteran is ready to start his or her next mission, WWP stands ready to serve.
