Last night Cornell played Michigan in an ice hockey game at Madison Square Garden. Cornell came out with a 5-1 win, which I was ecstatic about. The Big Red not only surprised its fans with a great performance after two pretty terrible weekends, but they also came out for the 2nd period in camo jerseys. I’m a traditionalist, so usually I’d be upset with any change to the team’s uniforms, but this was for an amazing cause. It was part of a fund and awareness raising effort for Wounded Warrior Project, which is a Jacksonville, FL based non-profit that aims “to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” While I was enjoying a hockey game last night, there were men and women ten years younger than me risking life and limb to ensure my safety. The costs of war can be extreme, which is why it’s important that those of us who enjoy the safety provided by our service men and women do our best “to fulfill the needs of injured service members.” That’s what Wounded Warrior Project is about.
Wounded Warrior Project specifically “serves military service members who incurred service-connected wounds, injuries, or illnesses on or after September 11, 2001 and their families.” This is a group of people that has benefitted significantly from advanced armor and improved medical technology. Injuries that would have been fatal no longer are. That’s undoubtedly a good thing, but it has created a new set of challenges for our military families–especially when you consider that our recent conflicts have left 6,625 service members dead and 50,107 wounded. Those numbers make it all the more impressive that Wounded Warrior Project already has 25,000 program alums. WWP’s Programs focus on four key areas: Mind, Body, Economic Empowerment, and Engagement. They’re doing some really cool stuff, so take a little time to learn more about specific programs. If you’re excited about helping our wounded warriors get on the path to recovery, take a look at Wounded Warrior Project’s Jobs page. There are a ton of jobs in locations all across the country, and plenty of the mare entry level. Check them out.
