Red Fridays - American Wounded Warrior Project
Updated: Jun 13, 2019
On Fridays we wear Red to remember those actively deployed and those back at home who fought for our freedom. American Wounded Warrior Project is a non-profit organization that helps service men and women who have come home from war wounded and in need of treatment and/or help.
Statement from their website:
More than 52,000 servicemen and women physically injured in recent military conflicts.
500,000 living with invisible wounds, from depression to post-traumatic stress disorder.
320,000 experiencing debilitating brain trauma.
Advancements in technology and medicine save lives – but the quality of those lives might be profoundly altered.
The numbers speak for themselves, because not every warrior can. With the support of our community of donors and team members, we give a voice to those needs and empower our warriors to begin the journey to recovery.
