Dear Debbie,

Though winter still has a numbing grip on much of the country, the Wounded Warrior Project is buzzing with life-changing activity!

There's no time to waste for injured heroes eager to hit the road to recovery. With your help, they're charging the slopes, hitting the books, and embracing new challenges all winter long.

And as Valentine's Day approaches, don't forget to send your powerful message of love and care to a wounded warrior today!

Sharing your warmth with the wounded,
Steven Nardizzi, Signature

Climbing Great Heights with
his Fellow Wounded Warriors

Climbing to Great Heights for His Fellow Wounded

It's certainly not his first act of service to his fellow wounded warriors, though it may be his grandest! This month Sgt. Tom Bauschke will climb Tanzania's Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise money for injured soldiers. Honor a hero who just keeps giving when you support his 68-mile climb for the wounded now!

WWP Joins Coalition to Train Peer Mentors

WWP Joins Coalition to Train Peer Mentors

According to WWP's Jim Mayer, "often the most positive influence on the initial recovery of a seriously injured service member is the friendship and understanding of a fellow wounded warrior." That's the idea behind a recent effort to train wounded warriors as certified peer mentors.

Legislators Address War's Invisible Wounds

Legislators Caucus to Address War's Invisible Wounds

Alarmed that suicides now exceed combat casualties, concerned members of Congress formed the Invisible Wounds Caucus. Recognizing that veterans still face too many barriers when seeking treatment, the caucus aims to promote awareness of such "invisible wounds" as PTSD and brain injuries while improving opportunities for support.

Hearing Reveals Veterans
Still Struggle to Get Treatment

Congressional Hearing Reveals Veterans  Still Struggle to Get Treatment

Blinded by a blast in Iraq, Sgt. Sean Johnson told a recent Congressional hearing about the ragged patchwork of care he has received since his injury. WWP's Jonathan Pruden also testified on behalf of the wounded, advocating a more streamlined, holistic approach to treatment.

Project Odyssey Heads to Wildcatter Ranch

Project Odyssey Heads to Wildcatter Ranch

Wounded warriors will soon embark on a journey of healing at Wildcatter Ranch. It's WWP's third trip to the beautiful, 1500-acre resort located in Graham, Texas. Through horseback riding, canoeing and teambuilding activities, the wounded confront their struggles with combat stress (PTSD) and other invisible war wounds.

As Valentine's Day Approaches ...
