On behalf of the board, staff, and alumni of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), I want to welcome you to the WWP family.
My name is Melissa Stockwell. I was wounded on a treacherous road in Baghdad while leading a supply convoy to the front line.
I first heard about Wounded Warrior Project when I received a WWP backpack while recovering in the hospital. The backpack contained essential care and comfort items such as clothing, toiletries, a calling card, a CD player and playing cards. Since then, I have learned a lot more about how this amazing organization is educating Americans about combat-injured troops while providing many other services to help soldiers like me thrive throughout our transition to civilian life and beyond.
I invite you to learn more about the WWP programs that have helped me and others like me since we've returned home to the U.S.
Thank you for your interest in Wounded Warrior Project. Please look for an email next week in which I will introduce some of my colleagues and fellow alumni.
Wishing you the best,
First Lieutenant, U.S. Army (Ret.)
Member, WWP Board of Directors
