Wounded Warrior Project
Friday. In the Daily Office we remember in prayer the suffering and death of Christ. In our daily walk we encounter men and women who served our country, Veterans, who carry scars that are both visible and invisible. We encounter men and women who carry wounds received while serving us. The Wounded Warrior Project is one group reaching out to those men and women, with our help.
To honor and empower wounded warriors.
To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members

The care packages, which are headed to Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait and Germany, are filled with the comforts of home. And while the wounded service members who receive them may never know they were assembled by professional athletes, it’s the thought that counts. Read the whole story from News4Jax.com
