Some of the Veterans We Have Helped
"Words cannot express the way that Wounded Veterans Project has helped me and my family make a very critical move in life due to the pandemic. We lost our home in one state that we were renting all of the sudden and didn't have any emergency money to do it. We frantically searched for help and support. We finally ran across the Wounded Veterans Project and they made it happen for us. We didn't get the moon and the stars but we got what we needed to pack up and move to a more affordable state and as of now we are ok again. God bless the folks of the Wounded Veterans Project." - Ryan Hans
Rocky Hill Veterans Home
WVP sent them 75 pairs of slippers to help keep Veterans warm and comfortable.
"On January 21, 2021 our family home burned down and all was lost. I was completely devastated about this but what made it worse was that my husband was away for training, we have a 2.5 year old daughter, and I am 7 1/2 months pregnant. Within a day of the fire, my husband was contacted by Jeannie and told about her organization, The Wounded Veterans Project. She reached out wanting to help my family with financial and physical needs. Jeannie later contacted me to inform me that a check was in the mail, and I received it within a week. We are so grateful for the generous donation from The Wounded Veterans Project and will use that to rebuild our new home. We are thankful for the kind people that exist in this world and will pay it forward to others in need." -Melissa Messier
Persian Gulf Memorial
We were one of the sponsors that helped fund this beautiful memorial.
Sometimes in life we face different challenges. When we are going through tough situations, we need someone to be kind and extend their helping hand. I am a Combat Veteran and many of us sometimes don’t have many people around us who are willing to help for whatever reason that may be. This is what I went through when the Pandemic hit at the beginning of 2020. I was struggling and having to decide between feeding my children or paying rent and other bills. I was not being able to go to work as we were in quarantine and my children were fully remote. The great people of the leasing office where I live suggested I could reach out to Jeannie Miller. This sweet lady helped with my rent payment, and alleviated my situation. The process was quick and easy and I will be forever grateful for this organization. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. -Jen and kids
We cannot say thank you enough for how truly humbled we are at the generosity your organization has shown us. 2020 was a rough year for everyone. Thanks to your Wounded Veterans Project we were able to give our children a wonderful Christmas and not have to stress about utility bills and medical bills that were overwhelming us. The process was smooth and Jeannie was a blessing to work with. It's great to know that there is somewhere to turn to when things get hard.
I have said this many times before:
When you serve, its about the person standing next to you and this should not change just because we no longer wear the uniform, and Wounded Veterans Project, Inc. did just that.
On 22 April, my dog Bean was rushed to the emergency room for the second time this month. He was diagnosed with an autoimmune disease called Immune Mediated Hemolytic Anemia (IMHA). It is a disease where the immune system destroys the body’s red blood cells. IMHA is a very treatable disease and up to 75% of dogs can recover with the right treatment plan, however this disease is extremely dangerous and variable, with no predictability. While the doctors were confident with a treatment plan, the amount of time before Bean’s body reacts to the medications was a guessing game and the treatments are expensive. The two things we needed most were patience and money.
With me being out of work due to Covid, I had plenty of one and not enough of the other.
When Wounded Veterans Project learned about Bean, they reached out to me and offered to help right away with a very generous $500 donation towards his treatment bill. I didn’t know about this organization and while I am a Veteran, I am not a wounded or a combat Veteran, yet they still offered to help, without question. For them, they didn’t care about the uniform or how dirty it was, it was about the person standing next to them and I am forever grateful for that.
As I write this, Bean is still recovering, but he is home. He is home because of so many generous people, like Jeannine Miler and the Wounded Veterans Project for helping us with the costs of Bean’s treatment. It’s nice to know that there are people and organizations out there who can help when you need it the most.
This has been a very humbling experience to have to ask others for help to pay the vet bill, but it has also showed us the importance and the joy of giving back and helping others.
