“It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, for vengeance, for desolation. War is hell.”
-William Tecumseh Sherman, the U.S. Civil War Union Army leader known for Sherman’s March
Being in my 60’s, I have watched, grieved over, been an activist against, and grown hardened to the horrors of war. But I will never stop doing all I can to support veterans and service members who have been wounded or made ill because of their dedication and sacrifice for me and all citizens of this country. Wounded Warrior Project ® is an organization who is determined to help these soldiers and their families.
It’s an easy way for families like mine to give back.
