Why Help Support Severely Wounded Veterans with PPF?
Since 9/11, three million young people have served in our military. 16,000 young Americans, who volunteered, have received devastating injuries. Their average age is 23. Chances are, you know someone who has served in the military or has been injured. Severely disabled veterans find it extremely difficult to return to civilian life. Your donation directly supports programs that help and empower these vets. Click here to learn more.
