During the Tour of California Team Astana took some time before one of the stages to meet members of the WWP.
The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) was founded on the principle that veterans are our nation's greatest citizens. The WWP seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world.Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns, and blast injuries that will retire these brave warriors from military service.
From the battlefield to their bedside, WWP is there to meet the needs of our wounded heroes:
They provide them with unique programs and services.
They raise awareness and enlist public support.
They provide a means for veterans to help each other.
Wounded Warrior Project is a nonprofit organization. To to learn more click on the title link.
