National Organizations

Wounded Warrior Project

Proud Supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project

The mission of Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) is to honor and empower wounded warriors. WWP’s purpose is to raise awareness and to enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members, to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.

WWP began when several veterans and friends, moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a program to provide comfort items to wounded service members has grown into a complete rehabilitative effort to assist warriors as they recover and transition back to civilian life. Thousands of wounded warriors and caregivers receive support each year through WWP programs designed to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.

USO

USO Supporter - Mission BBQThe USO has been collaborating with the military to serve troops and their families since 1941, and according to Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, this collaboration is what sets the USO apart from other organizations. Mullen joined Deputy Secretary of Defense William Lynn to comment on the USO’s history today during the USO Exhibit ceremony at the Pentagon.

“Over the course of the last four years I’ve watched the USO change,” said Mullen. They’ve been at the heart of [lifting spirits]…from day one…even with all of the challenges we’ve faced with our wounded. I’ve been impressed with…the USO. It’s on a great glide-slope with a terrific vision and a terrific plan. Look to a bright, bright future of partnership between the Pentagon…and the USO.”

“Back in World War II we had…3,000 USO centers—all manned by volunteers…and today we have tens of thousands of volunteers that are still there, making a difference,” said USO President Sloan Gibson. “It’s really these volunteers…that make the USO America’s way to show appreciation to troops and families. It’s the visceral support of America, standing behind the work that we do, because that’s what a young Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Coast Guardsmen or Marine or their family member recognizes when they walk into a USO center. That they are there for them and only for them and that there’s not any other agenda.”

“The USO is so much more than entertainment,” Mullen said. “The USO travels all over the globe to engage our men and women in uniform and we are eternally grateful for that. Thanks for the work that went into this dedication. All of us in the Pentagon will cherish it.”
