Wounded Warrior Project: A noble mission

The project offers guidance to Senator Akaka and Senator Burr in the development of crucially needed legislation. The project applauds both Senator Daniel Akaka (D-HI) and Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) for their introduction of the new legislation, the Family Caregiver Program Act of 2009, in order to assist the family caregivers of the severely wounded veterans.

Wounded warrior project or WWP in short, is a non-profit organization whose mission is to respect and empower the wounded warriors. The project offers services and programs such as benefits and career counseling, and combat stress seminars to aid in the transition from the hospital bed to a free, productive life.

The WWP’s highest legislative priority stands in securing comprehensive and ongoing support for family caregivers throughout the nation. A number of family caregivers are struggling to care for their veterans, often to the loss of their own health, the reduction of their finances, the loss of jobs and health care, and the endangerment of the family unit because of the emotional and economic toll.

The bill is looking forward to provide not just training and certification program for caregivers, rather it would also arrange for group and individual counseling, in addition to the allowances provided. The project has started off with a great mission and is expecting a support from celebrities as well.
