Support WWP


Dear Debbie,

Autumn is coming, and we're shifting gears at Wounded Warrior Project. No intended reference to the hot Chevy Camaro to the left, of course... Click here to watch the video!

The wheels on our Soldier Ride bikes have seen a long summer, and a new group of war-wounded students is moving into high gear in higher education with WWP at their sides.

Read the stories below. You'll see that a great deal is rolling down the highway for the wounded, thanks to the kindness you show when you support WWP with your generous gifts.

Always supporting our wounded veterans!

It's hard to think of anyone who cared as much about our troops as the late Bob Hope. Read how his devotion continues with a recent grant from The Bob and Delores Hope Charities Foundation that will benefit WWP. So you're in good company when you support the wounded through WWP!



Climbing Mountains with Wounded Heroes


Read the whole story

Tim Medvetz had something to prove to himself after a civilian injury shattered his body. So he climbed Mt. Everest. And now, after contacting WWP, he's helping wounded warriors see how they can climb mountains themselves. See how Tim and his inspired wounded warriors are now reaching new peaks!

Increases in Danger Lead to More Sacrifices


Support WWP today

More ambushes, firefights and IEDs planted in Afghan roads... Growing violence and suicide bomb activity in Iraq... American sacrifices are on the rise again, calling you and me to an ever deeper commitment to our returning troops. Will you respond with your gift of $50 ... $75 ... $100 ... or more now?

The greatest casualty is being forgotten.
