Wounded Warrior Project. Founded by Albion Giordano, John Melia, Jim Melia, and Steven Nardizzi.
With the motto “The greatest casualty is being forgotten.” Wounded Warrior Project strives to honor and empower veterans have been wounded serving our country. Seeing our veterans as a priority whether the United States is at war or not, WWP believes in supporting vets through life as they navigate society. Their core values are: fun, integrity, loyalty, innovation, and service. With programs for mental health, physical health and wellness, helping veterans with finding work, and support groups for warriors and families, WWP is a resource every step of the way.
Wounded Warrior Project is headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. They also have offices in New York, New York, Washington, DC, and San Antonio, Texas.
Founding began in 2003 by simply sending backpacks to hospital beds of those wounded in battle, and from there grew into a comprehensive organization to support the men and women that fight for our lives.
We each have unique perspectives of the world based on our individual experiences. A Duer is someone that feels a personal responsibility to support the world in the most positive ways they know how. That means finding people and organizations that you have come to believe in and feel passionate about, and standing with them however you are capable. Whether your inspiration leads you to a donation or to the steps of the capitol, find the change that you believe is due.
