JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 22, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Grammy-nominated recording artist Josh Turner and former NFL quarterback Jesse Palmer are supporting injured veterans and their families during the coronavirus pandemic through Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP). The pair is part of WWP's Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner® virtual event.
In the virtual event's video, the celebrities join WWP CEO Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Mike Linnington and warrior Andrew Coughlan in encouraging viewers to support injured veterans through WWP's veteran programs and services.
"The Courage Awards & Benefit Dinner is a truly special event for Wounded Warrior Project," Linnington said. "We're excited to have Josh and Jesse join us to make this year's virtual event a memorable one for our supporters."
Palmer, who was set to host the in-person event on May 7 at Gotham Hall in New York City, is the host of the Emmy award-winning DailyMailTV show, football analyst for ESPN, and host of Food Network's Holiday Baking Championship.

Support from events like this is critical to WWP providing life-changing programs and services. Warriors and their families never pay a penny for any WWP program or service because they already paid their dues on the battlefield.
