Wounded Warrior Project

Founded in 2003 - 11 Years of Dedication


Wounded Warrior Project was founded by John Melia with the assistance of family and friends in 2003. In 1992, Melia had been severely wounded in a helicopter crash in Somalia while serving. This experience gave him a firsthand knowledge of the particular and basic needs of injured military service members. Melia had previously worked for other veteran-focused nonprofit organizations, including Disabled American Veterans and Paralyzed Veterans of America.
