Wounded Wear The founder, Navy SEAL LT Jason Redman, was severely injured and struggled to find clothing he could wear around medical devices. He also noticed most people never assumed his injuries occurred on the battlefield fighting for our Freedom. These issues inspired him to create Wounded Wear. The mission was first to provide fashionable clothing and clothing modifications to wounded warriors. Now the mission includes raising the national awareness of the sacrifices of wounded warriors, their families, and the families of fallen service members. In support of this mission Wounded Wear advocates on behalf and facilitates opportunities for those who have sacrificed so much, and to foster a sense of pride, camaraderie, determination, and strength of purpose, amongst them, empowering them to rediscover the hero within.

I’ve had the pleasure of attending one of HFOT’s groundbreaking for a new home here in the Hill Country and I was very impressed by this organization... and not just the great mission they perform, but also how Larry Gil from HFOT told their story, a bit about how they operate, principles, values, etc. He himself is a character with two purple hearts from not one but two services. (He admitted he’s a slow learner)... More about him and HFOT next month, give or take.
Future site for Book and Movie Reviews/Suggestions. Netflix and Amazon are my best friends while I try to catch up on a dozen years of war. (Got any favorites?) Imagine my surprise to slip in a DVD and see a founder of an organization listed on this site on a TV show (Combat Zone) made years ago. And my, what salty language! Oh well, it must have helped cuz he’s back safe and sound and doing good things for transitioning warriors. Woo Hoo! Gotta love it when you can come back and give back.
Good Things of a Miscellaneous Nature These organizations are all wonderful but don’t fit into one of the previous categories... wouldn’t it be great if we found more groups building homes, supplying vans, outfitting our troops, etc. etc. so we could have a page just for those.... I do have my eye on another home organization to check out. Please let me know, too, what you find, especially if you can personally recommend them.
