Supporting Our Veterans
Wounded Warrior Project
In 1992, while serving in Somalia, John Melia was wounded in a helicopter crash. Due to his injuries he thought it would be a great idea to create a nonprofit organization to offer a variety of programs, services, and events for the wounded veterans called the Wounded Warrior Project. Back in Roanoke, VA in 2003, the Wounded Warrior Project was set in motion.
The Wounded Warrior Project known as the WWP serves 35,648 registered alumni and 4,181 registered members as of August 1, 2013. There are many programs they have put together for the veterans. It just all depends on mind & body. Seeing as this project has been going on since 2003, the warrior satisfaction is at 96%, 251 warriors have served in Project Odyssey, 364 warriors now have jobs, and 205 warriors have participated in soldier ride. The Wounded Warrior Project spends 58% of the donations on the programs for the veterans.
This project has become one of the fastest-growing veterans’ charities in the country. When Mr. Melia first created the organization he wanted it to be a success. His mission of the whole project was to honor & empower wounded warriors. He has accomplished that mission and gained great success from this project.
