Our neighbors, Mark and Connie, are organizing their annual Hockey-A-Thon to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service AND their families. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment. Here is where you can help our nation’s heroes.
