Meeting the Needs of Injured Service Members

Our greatest casualty of war — warriors who have been wounded in the line of duty — is being forgotten, says the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), and the nonprofit organization wants to change that.

WWP serves U.S. veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness or wound because of their military service on or after September 11, 2001.

By raising public awareness and providing unique programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members, the organization’s goal is to foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in this nation’s history.
In addition to physical wounds, WWP works with veterans who live with the invisible wounds of war, including combat-related stress, major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Our founder, Dr. Ernest Holmes, said, “Our time should be devoted to knowing the truth that sets humanity free from the problem of ignorance; that truth which alone can bring enlightenment to the world, that war should cease, that people should live together in harmony because they have recognized the divinity within each other.”

The global mission of Centers for Spiritual Living, which publishes Science of Mind magazine, reads in part: “We see a world free of homelessness, violence, war, hunger, separation and disenfranchisement. … We envision a world in which we live and grow as one global family that respects and honors the interconnectedness of all life.”

Even as we focus on creating a peaceful world, may we honor and support those around the globe who have served their country.
