Giving Thanks to Our Wounded Warriors

 

As we celebrate Thanksgiving this week, let’s give thanks to the brave men and women who have so valiantly served our country. Many have returned severely wounded from battles in faraway countries. They deserve our thanks, our respect and our help.

About the Wounded Warrior Project

This year, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is recognizing its ten-year anniversary. The Project’s stated mission is to “honor and empower Wounded Warriors…and raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.”

The Project currently serves over 59,000 warriors and nearly 8,500 family members through its programs and services.

As the Project’s tagline states, “The greatest casualty is being forgotten.” I’ve made a donation to WWP in honor of the sacrifices of these wounded warriors so that I can live in safety and freedom.

My best wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving for you and your loved ones.

  1. I didn’t know of this organization – yes, it certainly seems like an important cause. I am grateful for all the many who have served our country.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

    • Leora — The Wounded Warriors organization has become an important factor in raising awareness of the difficulties of service men and women who return from conflicts with terrible wounds. I think they’ve done a lot to push the government to provide better care, too.

  2. Thx for letting us know about the Wounded Warrior project, Jeannette. I am grateful that the issues veterans face have now been brought to the forefront, and that we try to make their lives better, despite the various challenges that complicate their post-war existence.

    • Doreen — you’re welcome. Yes, the Wounded Warrior project has done much to highlight the challenges of returning veterans who face months and even years of rehabilitation.

  3. Agree with you, Jeannette that you Americans should give thanks to your wounded warriors. Many of them returned to a country that wasn’t interested in taking care of their needs.
