2013 ANNUAL REPORT

NICKY NORWOOD first served his country in the Gulf War, then
later in Operation Iraqi Freedom after reenlisting with the Mississippi
National Guard. He returned home with a bad back, post-traumatic
stress disorder, and no network of support. Wounded Warrior
Project stepped in with opportunities for Nicky to network and find
encouragement from other injured veterans. Today, Nicky, pictured
here with his wife, Sherry, is paying it forward by serving as a Peer
Mentor to WWP Alumni.

OUR MISSION
To honor and empower Wounded Warriors.
OUR PURPOSE
To raise awareness and enlist the publics aid for the needs of injured service members;
to help injured servicemen and women aid and assist each other; and to provide unique,
direct programs and services to meet their needs.
OUR VISION
To foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of injured service members
in our nations history.
OUR HISTORY
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began when several veterans and friends, moved
by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and
Iraq, took action to help others in need. What started as a desire to provide comfort
items to wounded servicemen and women at Walter Reed Army Medical Center has
grown into a holistic rehabilitative effort to assist warriors with visible and invisible
wounds as they recover and transition back to civilian life. Tens of thousands of
wounded service members, family members, and caregivers receive support each
year through WWP programs.
PROGRAMS
Our programs are specifically structured to engage warriors, nurture their minds and
bodies, and encourage their economic empowerment. Our families and caregivers
are provided comfort, care, and education to help support the recovery of their injured
service members.

a rocket blast sent him home to Indiana with
devastating physical and mental injuries.

A LETTER
FROM THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER AND CHAIR, BOARD OF DIRECTORS
WHAT DOES A LIFETIME OF COMMITMENT LOOK LIKE? Start with a trust fund that will keep the most severely
injured warriors out of institutional care for years to come. Continue with a growing number of programs and services
that promote a better lifestyle, from regular access to mental health counseling to hands-on coaching to improve diet
and exercise. We are committed today, tomorrow, and for a lifetime as we transition into our second decade of service
at Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). You can chart our progress through this 2013 annual report, which will show you that:

96 percent of Alumni said the computer skills learned in the Transition Training AcademyTM (TTA) would guide
their future career choices

$27.9 million in combined annual and retroactive benefits were awarded to Alumni

96 percent of warriors said they would seek out future mental health support as a result of
Project Odyssey

93 percent of warriors said they left a Physical Health & Wellness (PH&W) event with greater self-esteem

90 percent of warriors said the Peer Support program contributed to their ability to help and support
other injured service members

DONNA PRATT was filled with guilt


when knee and foot injuries took her
away from her U.S. Army family in Iraq.
She regained that confidence when
Wounded Warrior Project introduced
her to veterans in Illinois like herself.

84 percent of veterans placed in a job through Warriors to WorkTM were still working full time 24 months later

Our lifetime commitment is to empower warriors so they can move beyond surviving to thriving and embracing life,
meeting long-term goals, raising families, and enjoying a rewarding career. The steps we took toward that goal
this year resulted in direct, measurable impact, including 468 newly trained Peer Mentors ready to counsel and
encourage their fellow Alumni. Just over 2,000 family members were served, with 94 percent stating they gained
new coping skills for the unique challenges associated with caring for injured veterans. We tackled a rising trend
of weight gain among the veteran population with dynamic and engaging physical wellness events; 93 percent said
three months after an event they had tried a new sport or recreational activity. These accomplishments and many
others lay the foundation for warriors to achieve the best possible quality of life and, ultimately, make this the most
successful generation of injured service members in our nations history.
None of this would be possible without the support of our donors. The generosity of our major donors, community
supporters, and partners not only furthers our mission financially, but provides invaluable public awareness about
our cause. Within our donor pages, weve highlighted 885 donors who have supported WWP since its inception
10 years ago as a tiny backpack operation. Words cannot fully express our gratitude for their belief in our vision
for this generation of post-9/11 veterans.
Sincerely,

Steven Nardizzi

Were there at the outset of a warriors recovery in the hospital with WWP PACKS filled with
essential care items such as clothing, toiletries, playing cards, and more all designed to make
a hospital stay more comfortable. Under the PEER SUPPORT program, warriors are trained
to become Peer Mentors who serve as listeners, role models, and motivators for fellow Alumni.
Our ALUMNI program offers warriors long-term support and camaraderie through sporting
events, personal and professional development summits, and recreational activities.
We also serve our warriors through the WWP RESOURCE CENTER, a one-stop
shop for information equipped to help warriors, caregivers, and family members identify
resources to meet a wide range of needs. INTERNATIONAL teammates in Germany
work directly with injured warriors coming from the battlefield and bring warriors previously
treated at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center back to the hospital to personally say thank
you. The resiliency initiative is a powerful encouragement to medical staff, who get to see
the transition from hospital bed to successful recovery. Our knowledgeable BENEFITS
SERVICE teammates assist warriors in filing claims correctly the first time, as well as
advocating on their behalf for missed compensation opportunities in prior claims.

Chris Wolff will never forget the sound of the rocket-propelled grenade
bouncing off the airplanes wing or the roar of the wind rushing through
the shattered windows.
I accepted it; I was going to die in the sky over Iraq, Chris recalls.
Chris survived combat but was later almost killed by a flu shot given to him
during his service. The virus attacked his spinal cord and paralyzed him from
the neck down. Chris had the willpower to prove the doctors wrong, but he
lacked the motivation. Thats when Keith Sekora, another Air Force veteran
living with mobility issues, entered the picture.
Together, they hold each other accountable, forcing each other to push beyond
the perceived limits of their injuries. The hospital is a distant memory now as
they support each other in the next chapter of their lives to include Chris
walking on the beach at Keiths wedding.
Having someone on your side who is going through exactly what youre going
through makes all the difference, Keith says.

COMBAT STRESS RECOVERY PROGRAM helps warriors and their families maintain
healthy, meaningful relationships, while pursuing life goals free from the barriers or stigmas
associated with mental health issues. Assisting in that process is PROJECT ODYSSEY, which
uses the healing power of nature, along with support from mental health professionals, to let
warriors take a step back from everyday routines and gain a new perspective on life. More than a
one-time event, warriors leave Project Odyssey with tight-knit friendships and continued personal
outreach from WWP teammates. RESTOREWARRIORS.ORG offers educational tools and
resources including a self-assessment and videos of warriors sharing solutions to everyday
challenges to warriors and families living with the invisible wounds of war.
FAMILY SUPPORT is dedicated to caring for the family members and caregivers who
form such an integral part of a warriors successful recovery. Some services we provide
include respite retreats, educational events on self-care, and therapeutic support groups. The
INDEPENDENCE PROGRAM supports the long-term wellbeing of severely injured warriors
through the combined efforts of the warrior, family member or caregiver, a treatment team, and
community support professional. Together, they craft a personalized plan to help the warrior reach
his or her goals and plans.

CHRISTINE SCHEI

MIND
When Christine Scheis son Erik was gravely injured while serving in Iraq, she
immediately began caring for him without considering the seriousness of his
injuries, or how it would affect her own life.
Wed never met anyone with a brain injury before, so we didnt know, Christine says.
Erik was pulled back from the brink of death, but the snipers bullet left
him confined to a wheelchair and unable to perform the most basic of
tasks, including eating and dressing himself. Christine was experienced
as a mother, but she was unprepared to become a caregiver. Thats when
Wounded Warrior Project stepped in with a caregiver retreat, which gave her
a network of other caregivers to lean on for advice and some respite from the
24-hour demands of caring for her son.
The Scheis also enrolled in the Independence Program, which helps Erik live
life on his own terms. Each warrior in this program receives comprehensive,
long-term support from community service providers and a custom life plan for
reaching goals all at no cost to the warrior or his family.
It gives him a chance at a normal life, Christine says.

The PHYSICAL HEALTH & WELLNESS (PH&W) program provides recreation,


adaptive sports programs, and overall strategies to help warriors and families lead positive,
active lifestyles. PH&W focuses on four areas: inclusive/adaptive sports and recreation, nutrition,
wellness, and fitness. Our end goal is to create a generation of injured service members welladjusted in body and pursuing independent living.
SOLDIER RIDE is a unique four-day opportunity for warriors to use cycling and the bonds
of service to overcome physical, mental, or emotional wounds. Warriors of all ability levels can
cycle on adaptive hand cycles, trikes, and bicycles and experience a confidence boost as they
tackle the challenge along roads lined with cheering crowds. The event is also a chance to
develop peer support among other warriors and friendships that last long after the ride.

JOHN REGO

BODY
Retired Army Ranger John Rego is frank about what he considers the perfect
exercise: The more challenging the better.
Over the past two years, he has lost about 60 pounds with his grueling workouts,
but he wasnt always so inspired to stay fit. He started his journey on his couch,
living with post-traumatic stress disorder and the residual physical pain from
injuries sustained in a building collapse in Iraq. He was inspired by an
Under Armour workout with other injured service members in Baltimore,
Maryland, to get back in shape. In his first workouts post-injury, he couldnt
get his chin over the pull-up bar. Perseverance eventually paid off though,
and provided John not only a fit body, but a new attitude toward life.
The new John Rego is extremely positive, especially compared to who I was
nine years ago, John says. I really want to spread the word to other veterans
so they can feel better, too.

Economic empowerment programs allow Alumni to be successful in every


aspect of their lives, including financial stability and a rewarding civilian career.
TRANSITION TRAINING ACADEMY (TTA) equips veterans with information
technology experience and certifications through free classes across the country. TTA
instructors engage each student, both onsite and online, with a learn-by-doing technique
that increases the potential for success. TRACKTM is the first whole-life approach to
education for wounded service members and focuses over the course of a year on academic,
personal, and vocational/employment-related needs. As part of a cohort, each warrior earns
up to 24 credit hours at a local college while also experiencing health and wellness training,
personal finance workshops, and career development opportunities such as resume writing
and interview skills. EDUCATION SERVICES guides warriors through their options with
secondary education, provides customized plans for success, and educates warriors about
campus resources available to them.
The WARRIORS TO WORK program offers career guidance and support to wounded
service members, family members, and caregivers interested in transitioning to the civilian
workforce. Specialists assist warriors, set attainable goals, market their skills, and prepare
them for the interview process, while also educating employers on working with warriors,
including how to recruit and retain veterans and provide reasonable accommodations.

ECONOMIC
EMPOWERMENT
Not too long ago, Tiffany Green felt her life was spiraling out of control. She
had given up a rewarding career as a musical entertainer and actress to care
full-time for her husband, a former Marine living with serious post-traumatic
stress disorder. The independence and creative freedom she enjoyed were
replaced by days spent indoors or hours sitting in a hospital waiting room.
I felt like I was losing so much of who I am, Tiffany says.
Then, in 2011, they were greeted outside the hospital door by a
Wounded Warrior Project teammate. That introduction led to an Alumni
Summit, where Tiffany learned about Transition Training Academy. The
online TTA class was a perfect match for Tiffany, who has to work around
time constraints and her husbands needs. Besides learning valuable skills,
the class also opened up friendships and a network of support with other
caregivers around the country.
Its so helpful to know Im not going through this alone, Tiffany says.

POLICY &
GOVERNMENT AFFAIRS
Government support is critical to making this the most successful, well-adjusted
generation of injured service members in our nations history. Thats why weve
positioned a team of skilled advocates in Washington, D.C., to make sure that
much-needed support is there.
The policy team relies on feedback from our Alumni for a boots-on-the-ground
perspective that not only lends authority to our work, but helps ensure that
policymaking in Congress makes a real-world difference in the lives of those
we serve. That feedback informs our advocacy in four areas: mental health,
economic empowerment, long-term rehabilitation, and improving
the effectiveness of government programs that were established to help
warriors and their families transition from active duty to successful
community reintegration.
Thats evidenced by our first major legislative victory, the Traumatic
Servicemembers Group Life Insurance (TSGLI). TSGLI provides injured service
members up to $100,000 in short-term financial assistance in the event of a
traumatic injury. Between its inception in 2005 and October 31, 2013, TSGLI
has paid out $817 million in benefits. We also successfully championed for
caregivers of wounded veterans and saw our legislative vision realized through
the Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act of 2010. Since its
inception, more than 16,000 caregivers have received training, technical support,
mental health counseling, health care coverage, respite care, and a modest
financial stipend through the Department of Veterans Affairs.

In 2009, Acosta Sales & Marketing and Wounded Warrior Project teamed
together to create the national cause-marketing campaign Believe in

goods companies to raise funds and awareness for WWP. Beginning
September 11 and running through Veterans Day, November 11, Believe in
Heroes calls on Americans to show their support and appreciation for our
service members and newest generation of veterans in a simple everyday
way grocery shopping. What started on the 10-year commemoration of
9/11 has raised over $16 million to date for WWP.

Bank of America, a long-standing supporter of Wounded Warrior


Project, assists warriors and their families through financial planning
seminars and supports the Warriors to Work program. Additionally,
Bank of America spreads awareness and generates funds through their
annual Express Your Thanks campaign. For every expression of
thanks, Bank of America donated $1 and raised over $1 million for
WWP in 2013. This program includes online activations, awareness
campaigns, and warrior experiences through the Bank of America 500,
Bank of America Chicago Marathon, Major League Baseball All-Star

DONATIONS COME TO WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT IN MANY FORMS AND SIZES,


but all are a valued contribution to furthering our mission. We are grateful for the following donors and partners who make it
possible every day to honor and empower this generation of injured service members.
We have made every effort to avoid errors and omissions from this list of FY 2013 donors, but mistakes can occur. If your name
was inadvertently omitted, listed in the wrong place, or misspelled, please accept our sincere apologies and contact us at
majorgifts@woundedwarriorproject.org.

A strong belief in assisting injured service members prompted


Overstock.com to partner with Wounded Warrior Project in 2009.
As part of their commitment, Overstock.com shared stories of warriors,
families, and caregivers through their websiteand encouraged
shoppers to donate to WWP at checkout. The website also hosts
a page with products customers can purchase to support WWP,
including the Transition Training Academy (TTA) and Warriors to Work
programs. Their commitment extends beyond financial contributions to
impacting the lives of injured service members through the donation of
tickets to Oakland Raiders and Oakland As games in California.

In 2010, Raytheon announced a five-year grant to support Wounded


Warrior Project. Raytheons commitment directly supports
the expansion of the WWP economic empowerment initiative,
including the Transition Training Academy (TTA) and Warriors to Work.
Many TTA graduates have been reassigned to civilian information
technology (IT) jobs within the military, obtained job placement in the
private sector, or opened their own businesses. Raytheon believes in
their responsibility to empower wounded service members, and do so
by providing monetary support, mentorship, and career guidance.

In 2011, Safeway, Inc. dedicated Veterans Day weekend to pay tribute


to service members by asking their customers to donate to Wounded
Warrior Project at all Safeway, Vons, Pavilions, Dominicks, Randalls,
Genuards, Tom Thumb, and Carrs stores in the United States. In many
of these store locations, WWP Alumni shared their personal stories of
how Wounded Warrior Project helped them on their road to recovery.
Through this nationwide activation, Safeway, Inc. was able to generate
an enormous amount of awareness on behalf of WWP, in addition to
raising $1 million to help fuel programs that save lives.

Its probably the toughest event on the planet. Since Tough Mudder
introduced a fundraising option into its registration process, Tough
Mudder participants have raised more than $6 million for Wounded
Warrior Project. At nearly every Tough Mudder event, youll find a
team of injured veterans and their supporters completing the hardcore 10- to 12-mile challenge. Tough Mudder also hosts WWP information
areas, allowing WWP to raise awareness and support across the country.

In 2005, U-Haul became a founding partner of Soldier Ride, a Wounded


Warrior Project program that focuses on physical health, wellness,
and engagement. U-Haul is also a proud supporter of Warriors to Work
and TRACK, and assists with the moving needs of WWP Alumni
nationwide. U-Hauls support of the U.S. military dates back to 1945.
Today, veterans remain a large part of the companys success as
U-Haul continues to seek them to become members of the U-Haul family.

Under Armours support of Wounded Warrior Project began with their


decision to underwrite the Packs program. To date, over 8,000 backpacks
have been delivered to the hospital bedsides of newly injured service
members. Under Armours programmatic impact reaches beyond the
Packs program as the organization supports WWP career placement
opportunities, Physical Health & Wellness events, and Alumni
engagement opportunities at various sporting events. Since 2009,
select Under Armour Division I football teams have worn specially
designed uniforms for one game to honor WWP at the UA Freedom
Games. Through December 2014, Under Armour has committed a
minimum donation of $1 million to WWP through apparel sales.

We would also like to recognize our Allies, those who generously gave between $5,000 and $24,999. A comprehensive list can
be located on the financials page of our website at woundedwarriorproject.org/mission/financials.aspx.

STRATEGIC PARTNERS

GRANTMAKERS
Grant support from community, corporate, family, private, and public
foundations, and through donor-advised funds, is especially important
for a nonprofit that doesnt accept government funding. We are honored
that these individuals and organizations have done a thorough review of
WWP, and included us in their selection process to fuel programs that
honor and empower Wounded Warriors.

We are grateful for our strategic partners, who promote our cause and raise funds on our behalf through cause-marketing campaigns
and consumer-engagement events.

CVS Caremarks hands-on approach to supporting warriors and


their families goes beyond their generous grant in FY 2013. From
serving as a TRACK program externship partner to matching
warriors to careers through the Warriors to Work program, their
multidimensional engagement truly changes lives. They even
provided a unique opportunity to Jacksonville TRACK students
to work on their golf game with a PGA pro. Pictured here: Leonard

I DECIDED TO TURN A NEGATIVE INTO A POSITIVE AND, AFTER

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGIATE DIRECTORS OF

10-YEAR DONORS
The following individuals have contributed to our cause every year since our inception in 2003. Their continuous support has not only
promoted the growth and success of Wounded Warrior Project, but changed and saved the lives of countless veterans. We offer
sincere gratitude for their ongoing support and dedication to our mission.

WE BELIEVE STRONGLY THAT THE SACRIFICES MADE


BY OUR SERVICE MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
PAST, PRESENT, AND FUTURE ARE WHY WE HAVE
BEEN SUCCESSFUL AS A NATION.
WE WERE BORN IN 1949 AND GREW UP IN THE AFTERMATH OF WORLD WAR
II. PATRIOTISM IS A NATURAL PART OF OUR LIVES, AND WE HAVE TRIED TO
INSTILL THAT SAME PATRIOTISM IN OUR CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN.
NO ONE IN OUR IMMEDIATE FAMILY HAS BEEN CALLED UPON TO SERVE IN
THE MILITARY SINCE WORLD WAR II AND VIETNAM. HOWEVER, OUR DEBT TO
ALL THOSE WHO HAVE EVER SERVED IS ONGOING AND IMPORTANT TO US TO
RECOGNIZE. THE HONOR IS NOT IN GIVING. THE HONOR IS FOR THOSE WHO
HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH FOR ALL OF US, AND IT IS WITH A HUMBLE SPIRIT OF
GRATITUDE THAT WE GIVE.

MILLION
IN EMPLOYEE GIVING

Our ability to create a lifetime of commitment for this generation of warriors was
greatly enhanced last year when working Americans gave more than $5.4 million
to Wounded Warrior Project. Their selfless generosity has a direct impact on our
ability to empower thousands of injured warriors.

We are also grateful for the public awareness generated through employee giving.
Word about our mission is spreading through thousands of workplace fundraisers
and campaigns that involve not only coworkers, but their families and friends, too.
That grassroots support is critical as we transition into the next decade of service.

ADAM HARRIS was exposed to some of the hardest


fights in Iraq over the course of three back-to-back
deployments as an infantry Marine. Years after he
separated from the Marine Corps, those scenes of
violence still replayed in his mind, leaving Adam
depressed and angry. His life was changed when
another veteran in Boise, Idaho, convinced Adam to
attend a Project Odyssey retreat. I faced some of the
things I had a hard time accepting, and I was able to
forgive myself and move on, Adam says.
