As Wounded Warrior Dan Nevins said to me when we met, “We’ve only got one life to live, and hopefully we do something good with it.” I have found that my desire to express my gratitude for this one life continues to grow as the years go by, each one seemingly faster than the year before.
As I look back, I’m proud of many things that I have accomplished — particularly raising my sons to always be the best versions of themselves. Now that both of my boys have grown and are out in the world pursuing their own dreams, I wanted to create a new kind of mentorship and giving. So when I created Cobalt, I also created a partnership with Wounded Warrior Project.
I have deep respect for the men and women who have served our country and continue to enable us all to have the freedoms and privileges America was built on. I hope you will join me in the pursuit of putting your best face forward each and every day, and in showing true appreciation for our veterans by contributing to services and resource that enable them to live the happy and productive lives they so deserve.
Moved by stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, several veterans and friends took action to help others in need — and Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) was born. Since 2003, WWP has been a tireless advocate and service provider for our nation’s brave men and women when they return home with both the visible and invisible wounds of war.
Wounded Warrior Project has improved the lives of millions of warriors and their families through advocacy efforts, as well s life-changing programs and services in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative health.
Every single day, more than 50 new wounded warriors and family members register to gain access to free, life-saving programs and services. When brave men and woman return for their mission, WWP stands ready to serve.
