The WWP Mission

The Wounded Warrior Project is dedicated to helping “veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound while serving in the military on or after September 11, 2001” (woundedwarriorproject.org). The WWP accomplishes this mission in a variety of ways. Providing support and training for members and caregivers alike, the Wounded Warrior Project tailors an approach to wellness that is individualized for the service member that receives it. In support of WWP’s mission, the organization provides a number of veteran-specific programs and services that focus on mental and physical wellness, personal independence, career counseling, and more.
