Dear caring friend,

In the midst of a busy and productive summer for Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP), I am once again reminded of the importance of your support of our work, and the incredible determination of the wounded warriors we serve.

Please take a few minutes to read this newsletter and see for yourself. From dedicated caregivers enjoying a thrilling whitewater rafting excursion, to new collegiate scholarship offerings, and cookouts hosted on military bases to raise money for WWP, all exemplify the values of integrity, honor, and commitment supporters have for the men and women who fought for us.

I hope their courage will inspire you to continue your generous support of WWP.

Thank you for your continued support,

Caregivers Recharge After Supporting Heroes

Caregivers make great sacrifices and face difficult challenges. They pour their hearts into the recovery of injured family members and friends. WWP recently gave a group of those tireless caregivers a chance to recharge and bond through an exciting whitewater rafting adventure.

Marine's Sister Organizes Benefit Concert

Marcia Hay's brother, Sergeant Philip "Mac" McCulloch, suffered multiple injuries while serving in Afghanistan. While none were serious enough to end his tour of duty, others in Mac's battalion weren't as lucky. Inspired by the courage and spirit of these brothers-in-arms, Marcia organized a community concert this summer to benefit WWP.

Full-Tuition Scholarships for Heroes

WWP and the University of Phoenix have teamed up to provide 10 full-tuition scholarships to eligible WWP Alumni, their spouses, and primary caregivers. Scholarship recipients will have the opportunity to earn a master's degree at one of the University's 200 plus locations or in its online classrooms.

A “Grand Slam” Dream Fulfilled

Retired Sergeant Eric Edmundson's dream of completing a “Grand Slam” hunt didn't cease when he suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) in Iraq, but it was delayed. With support from WWP, Eric and his dad recently set off on a 9,000-mile hunting expedition. Eric's trip includes several outreach events where he hopes to inspire other wounded heroes to believe dreams are possible.

Weekend Cookouts Support WWP

Since September 2010, a dedicated group of 15 to 20 American Logistics Association employees has spent, on average, half of their weekends raising money for WWP programs. They hosted cookouts at military bases near Washington, DC, and sold the food, netting more than $25,000 in donations. You can join the ranks of dedicated supporters by becoming a WWP Proud Supporter.

Stand Up For Wounded Warriors By Sitting Down

Join Cracker Barrel guests across the country as they form the World's Longest Front Porch and raise money for our country's wounded warriors. Take your photo seated on the front porch of a Cracker Barrel (or even your own porch) and upload it to or email it to [email protected]. Cracker Barrel will donate $1 to Wounded Warrior Project™ for every photo, up to $35,000.
