Wounded Warrior Project and NACDA Embark on Fourth Year

Sept. 28, 2009

Now in its fourth year of partnership with NACDA, the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to honor and empower wounded warriors. The organization provides benefits and career counseling, adaptive sporting opportunities, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) programs and family caregiver programs to aid in the transition of warriors from a hospital bed to an independent and productive life. WWP staff also works closely with members of Congress on important legislative issues relating to our nation’s severely wounded veterans.

“I believe Wounded Warrior Project is one of the best organizations currently serving wounded warriors and their families,” said Florida State Director of Athletics and NACDA President Randy Spetman. “Their work across the country is truly inspirational. I know their involvement with your school will be one of the highlights of your athletics year.”

To date, the following institutions have confirmed wounded warrior events for 2009-10: Southwestern Oklahoma State, Florida State, Lehigh, Evangel, Central Arkansas, Old Dominion, Southern Methodist, Stephen F. Austin State, Northern Arizona, Texas Tech, Yale, Notre Dame, Nicholls State, Central Connecticut State, Virginia, VMI, Georgia Southern, Rhode Island and Belmont University.
