Last week, Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) announced that it is committing $10 million to help meet the immediate needs of warriors who are in urgent and significant financial crisis due to the loss of household income caused by the corona virus pandemic.
The group is asking able companies and foundations to join the effort to support our nation’s heroes by matching the $10 million commitment.
Meanwhile, yesterday, the Veterans Administration announced “Fourth Mission,” an initiative to help the country’s response to COVID-19, reaching people where they live and getting resources to those who need them.
VA has determined to make 1,500 beds available for the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). These beds will be a combination of acute care and intensive care beds for non-Veteran patients available at various VA locations around the country.
