We put a lot of hard work into recognizing, recruiting, and verifying all of our Wounded Warrior Participants at any of our events. All participants are thoroughly vetted prior to our issuing an invite for any of our activities. SOWW relies heavily on our partnership with SOCOM’s Care Coalition and also on other relationships within the SOF communities to field our candidates.
All of our participants are either active duty or veteran/retired representatives of the SOF communities and most have been awarded our Country’s prestigious Purple Heart Medal. SOWW does allow some exceptions on a case by case basis for members of SOF that received significant wounds or injuries during non-combat actions in which they do not qualify for a Purple Heart Medal. In addition to Purple Heart recipients, SOWW recognizes injuries sustained during significant training incidents or overseas missions where the Purple Heart was not applied for. SOWW also recognizes “injuries” such as TBI and PTSD for consideration for participation in our events. Again, each nomination is viewed on a case by case basis and invitees are ultimately determined after review of our Board of Directors.
