Re: DISABLED VETERAN
I was discouraged to see that Viet Nam vets not included in WWF. I am from that era even though I never server, I have many friends who did and a few who did not come home.
That said I was happy to check out the Wounded Warriors Foundation website and they have a Mission Statement in plain view and it says
"Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) exists to honor and empower wounded warriors who incurred service-connected injures on or after September 11, 2001. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers.
The tragic events of Sept. 11 are often the reason warriors say they felt a sense of duty to volunteer for the military. These individuals chose to defend our country, and that is why we honor them.
Sept. 11 also served as a catalyst for conflicts Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). Operation Iraqi Freedom refers to military operations in Iraq that began March 19, 2003 and officially ended August 31, 2010. Operation Enduring Freedom refers to combat operations in Afghanistan and other regions in support of the Global War on Terror."
I would have been disappointed if this was not public info but they have it right there on their website and it is not hard to find. As stated I am disappointed but will not withdraw my monthly support.
