Just stumbled across this thread, and it brought a tear to my eye, now quit cutting onions. I am getting back into shooting via airguns myself, PB's bother me immensly now by taking me back to where I don't want to be.  Thank you for supporting my brothers and sisters, it means so much just to hear any type of positive recognition. To my Brothers and Sisters, welcome home. Us Army 1985-2011

I was approached by a Nam vet in a parking lot after he saw my Wounded warriors sticker on my car. He said "thank you very much for helping vets but.... their were much better ways to help vets than paying Steven Nardizzi Executive Director of W.W. $470,000 a year. Such as giving to the VFW
or DAV  where you get more bang for your buck so to speak" When I got home I did some checking and he was right. I was shocked to find out only 60% goes to the vets. 40% to expenses.  I know W.W. does a lot of good but they need to get more of the $ into the hands of the vets that have been left behind by the government.

A heart breaker by anyone's standards.  They will fix it. Warriors will fix it.

I'm a 2 theatre combat 100% disabled vet who found air gunning as a way to keep up my love of shooting after my shoulders were torn up so bad I could no longer handle the recoil of firearms. Keep up this great site for all of us. Not everyone is Airborne, but very few people can't become avid airgunners with a little encouragement and a comfortable learning exposure. Good job guys!!!!!

Dave, just to clarify which program are you referring to?
Asking because there is the one you are referencing WWP Organization, here on GTA, and there is the Wounded Warrior Project
(https://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/) for vets relegated only after 9-11. That is my understanding when I inquired about it a few years ago.

Others feel free to chime in if you know differently.
