Wounded Warrior Project Helps Soldiers Return To Everyday Life [VIDEO]

Wounded Warrior Project

Many families in Texarkana and across the United States have been affected by a family member returning home from war. For some, it’s a very difficult transition.

So in response, the Wounded Warrior Project assists “veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after Sept. 11, 2001 and their families.”

Staff Sergeant Chad Brumpton is one of the soldiers who the Wounded Warrior Project has helped. In May 2005, he was securing a 50-foot bridge on the Euphrates River when a improvised explosive device (IED) went off and punched a hole through his tank, right beneath his feet. He was told he’d never walk again.

Over the next two years, Brumpton underwent 19 surgeries and became a  bilateral, below-the-knee amputee. Wounded Warrior Project helped him overcome the psychological and physical repercussions of his injuries. Now, not only is he walking, but running as well!

Families around the world can now look to this organization to assist them through a very difficult time and yet give hope for a successful adjustment.
