“Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to serve the population of nearly half a million Veterans with severe post-combat physical limitations, and the same number of Veterans living with non-visible mental health difficulties trying to cope with depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and other difficulties. Wounded Warrior Project partners with other organizations including America’s Warrior Partnership, National Military Family Association, Team Red White and Blue, Team Rubicon, The Mission Continues, and other programs dedicated to serving the needs of and strengthening Veterans support systems. For example, Team Rubicon deploys Veterans along with emergency response teams to areas affected by disasters all over the country. Individually, Veterans and their families can benefit greatly from involvement with these programs. As a whole, a community of Veterans is strengthened by coming together to support each other and Civilians in need, and everybody benefits.
