Wounded Warrior Projects (WWP) top priority is getting desperately needed legislation passed by Congress to provide critical support to family caregivers of severely wounded warriors including those with catastrophic injuries such as severe Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Spinal Cord Injury, and others.

Over the past 4 years, WWP has listened to the needs and concerns directly from family caregivers of critically injured service members from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Respite care, mental health counseling, technical assistance, health care coverage and a modest stipend, can make the difference between a warrior being able to receive the care and services they need in their own homes and communities rather than in institutional or nursing home settings.

A bi-partisan bill, (S.801) is currently awaiting action in the United States Senate. This bill acknowledges and fully supports the vital role of the family caregiver for the warriors well-being and will provide long term support and services for our severely wounded warriors and their family caregivers.

With your help, progress has been made but more is needed. To date, 24 Senators co-sponsored this legislation we need the support of your U.S. Senator. This country owes it to our service members to take care of those who care for them.

You have the opportunity to help and make a life changing impact on our wounded warriors and their families.

Contact your Senators NOW to let them know how strongly you support the Caregiver and Veterans Health Services Act of 2009 (S. 801) and its supports and stipend for family caregivers.

To do so, please call the US Capitol Switchboard, at 202-224-3121, and ask to speak with the Senator from your state. You can also use or adapt the text of a sample letter to print and hand out or post, to which I have provided a link

Please call immediately and encourage others to do the same. Your grassroots action can make the difference!

I have also set up a store front where you can purchase mugs and soon tshirts and other items, and 100% of the profit will be donated to The Wounded Warrior Project. Link is in the description of this video.

The new mugs are beautifuly designed with an eagle proudly pictured on the front, on one side is the RantForAmerica Logo which symbolizes earth, strength and trust. We are all one.

The other side proudly displays the Wounded Warrior Project Logo, showing everyone that you proudly support our wounded heros. If you wish to donate further,

A link to donate directly to the Wounded Warrior Project is in the description.

This is not about whether or not you support the wars, it is about injured soldiers who need your help.

So please, order a mug, or donate directly, these are our husbands and wives, brothers, sisters, family, friends and loved ones.
