One of the most remarkable things about the modern U.S. military is that soldiers that suffer devastating injuries in battle die at a far lower rate than in previous eras. The military’s ability to successfully treat traumatic injuries is really that good. The downside is that far too many soldiers return to our shores with horrible physical and psychological injuries that can haunt them for a lifetime. That is where the Wounded Warrior Project comes into play. It’s an organization that is committed, in its own words, “to fostering the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation’s history.” The Rose Hotel, and several other local organizations, are joining forces to help the Wounded Warriors Project achieve that goal locally.
