“The profound and saddening statistics clearly show our nation needs to better serve those who serve us. But those numbers are only the tip of the iceberg because PTSD also has a tremendous negative impact on families, friends, co-workers, communities and millions of others. Our research has shown Project Hero programs have a positive measurable impact on helping those who suffer from PTSD, TBI and injury.” – John Wordin, President and Founder
