There’s so much energy in the Community Support Exhibit Hall here at the AW2 Symposium. Delegates are learning about valuable resources provided by the 23 organizations attending.
I got a chance to talk to most of the exhibitors today, and their enthusiasm was contagious. So many had stories to share about their work with wounded warriors and Families—and their plans to expand to serve even more Soldiers and Veterans. These organizations are an incredible example of the commitment and compassion that thousands of organizations exhibit toward America’s wounded warriors every single day.
The organizations at this year’s Community Support Exhibit Hall include:
- Air Compassion for Veterans*
- America’s Adopt a Soldier*
- Bob Woodruff Foundation
- Challenge America*
- Disabled Sports USA
- Freedom Alliance*
- Give an Hour*
- Higher Ground*
- Hope For The Warriors*
- INRange Systems
- Lakeshore Foundation*
- Operation Mend – UCLA Health System
- Our Military Kids*
- Patriot Paws*
- Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc.*

* Denotes organizations in the AW2 Community Support Network
Three years ago, Symposium delegates asked AW2 to help them learn more about the resources available to AW2 Soldiers, Veterans, and Families. In response, AW2 launched the AW2 Community Support Network in 2009 to increase local community support for wounded warriors to assist in their reintegration and long-term success.
