The dozens of programs offered by the Wounded Warrior Project are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body and encourage economic empowerment and engagement. In recent conflicts, thousands of servicemen and women have been injured. In addition to the many physical wounds, it is estimated that as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war, such as combat-related stress, major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Please help the Whitesboro and VVS boys and girls lacrosse programs support the Wounded Warrior Project.

See you at the games!
