The vision of the Wounded Warrior Project is”To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.”It works to fulfill such a vision through the following main activities:
- Raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- Helping injured service members aid and assist each other.
- Providing unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members.
Wounded Warrior Project’s services are meant to serve the mind, body, and livelihood of America’s wounded veterans. They include economic empowerment resources, athletic competitions, recovery and therapy programs, and peer connection and alumni mentorship.
Penn State NROTC Battalion members support Wounded Warrior Project’s efforts through fund- and awareness raising within the Penn State and State College communities. They also participate in various outreach trips, attending Wounded Warrior Project events and interacting with injured veterans. Awareness of the struggles of their comrades-in-arms runs deep, especially as the students increasingly see themselves as future military leaders. It is through their involvement with Wounded Warrior Project that NROTC students give back to those that need it the most.
