Wounded Warrior Project CEO to Deliver Remarks at Annual Joint Hearing of Senate and House Veterans Affairs Committees

WASHINGTON, Feb. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- On Feb. 26, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington will testify before a joint session of the Senate and House committees on Veterans Affairs and discuss WWP's legislative and policy objectives for 2020.

Wounded Warrior Project advocates for veterans affairs

"Wounded Warrior Project's response has been guided by a philosophy that we must be willing to adapt our programs and approaches to meet the evolving needs and unique challenges facing the warriors we serve," said Linnington. "Since the start of the 116th Congress, more than 17,000 new warriors have registered for our programs and services, and we continue to register nearly 50 warriors each day. This evidence strongly indicates a growing demand for a 360-degree model of care and support focused on connection, independence, and mental, physical, and financial wellness. Meeting that demand requires more resources than any one organization or federal agency can provide alone, which is why WWP is committed in spirit and action to partnering with others who share our vision to transform the way America's veterans are empowered, employed, and engaged in their communities."

Who: Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington, WWP CEO
Where: Dirksen Senate Building, Room SD-G50
When: 2:00 pm on Wednesday, Feb. 26
What: The top legislative priorities of WWP, as well as specific recommendations for congressional action on behalf of post-9/11 veterans and their family members.

WWP staff will be available for interviews after the testimony. Please contact Mattison Brooks (info below) for more details. To learn more about how WWP works with our nation's leaders to improve the lives of wounded veterans and their families, click here
