About Wounded Warrior Alabama:It’s impossible to estimate the true cost of military service. But veterans and their families continue to pay that price every day. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, past injuries and financial troubles all weigh on soldiers who fought for our freedom. Wounded Warrior Alabama gives back to Alabama’s troops to offset that cost. Founded in 2014 by two married, Disabled Veterans, They strive to make the lives of Alabama’s heroes better.

Funds raised by Wounded Warrior Alabama go directly to Alabama veterans to serve their needs, whether it’s buying groceries, paying bills or even keeping their car running so they can get to work. Wounded Warrior Alabama doesn’t focus on buying expensive homes for a single soldier when they can do so much for so many more.
