Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) Supports Our Military Kids

"Children of wounded veterans are impacted in life-changing ways as they shoulder burdens of caring for their parent," said René Bardorf, WWP senior vice president of government and community relations. "Our Military Kids helps gives military children opportunities to have fun, learn new skills, and enjoy other after school activities. We're proud to partner with Our Military Kids in affecting positive change for these worthy children."

"These activities help kids manage the stress and anxiety that occur when a parent is injured," said Rob Clapper, Executive Director of Our Military Kids.

By partnering with our organization, Wounded Warrior Project is supporting the entire family during a tough transition and providing a critical outlet for children of wounded warriors."
