Now, a new supporter has begun a very unique cross-country journey.
"I'm a gamer, and I want to do something for my fellow veterans because there's no one more important than them," said Chadwick James of Team Mystic, which is one of three teams Pokemon Go players can join within the app. "What could I do? Most people don't understand the hardships veterans face or what they've been through, and Wounded Warrior Project is my favorite charity because it helps veterans. I decided to combine these two passions and hit the road."
"It's only because when I walk around, I want to be able to wear the WWP logo," Chadwick joked. "Seriously though, I want people to know more about WWP, what it does, and why. If I am wearing that logo, people will see it. People trust in that logo and what it means for veterans everywhere."
"Veterans have a much harder life than people think," Chadwick said. "Most people think they are financially secure, but they're not. WWP is an extremely important charity because WWP takes care of us vets by giving us the tools we need to thrive after we leave the military. While I was serving, of all the veterans charities I saw work with other veterans, WWP was the one that always followed through on their promises."
