VA Secretary Wilkie thanks Wounded Warrior Project for $10 Million commitment to aid Veterans


WASHINGTON – U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs’ Secretary Robert Wilkie praised the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) on April 10, for its generous donation of $10 million to assist Veterans experiencing a financial crisis due to COVID-19.

“Coronavirus is disrupting daily American life, but WWP’s incredible contribution shows the American spirit is alive and stronger than ever,” Wilkie said. “This commitment does more than aid thousands of our warriors when they need it most – it inspires all of us to help our friends and neighbors though this unsettling time.”

WWP is asking foundations and companies in the private sector to match its commitment, and Wilkie urged any who can to contribute to this noble effort.

“These heroes risked everything when their nation called, and now it’s time for everyone to hear their call,” he said. “WWP has my deep thanks and appreciation for this gesture.”
