“The mission of the Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors.” (web) Specific to the term ‘empowering’ which is a large struggle on it’s own without the proper guidance to remain motivated. The WWP not only enables and empowers veterans to be their own success story, they also provide an increase in awareness and benefit from many programs that are offered to include employment.

Colonel Benjamin O. Davis, Jr., who some might say became the most famous Tuskegee Airman, had trained under Colonel Parrish. Parrish led Davis and the rest of the 99th Fighter Squadron into combat. He also led the 332nd Fighter Group and the 477th Composite Group into war, where again, all of the pilots had been trained under him at Tuskegee. After their deployment and the war was over, Colonel Benjamin O. Davis Jr. remained good friends with Colonel Parrish and the Tuskegee Airmen remembered Colonel Noel Parrish as a great honorable man. Parrish extended Davis an invitation to come back to the Tuskegee Army Air Field to speak at the fourth anniversary of the opening of training taking place there in August of 1945, and Davis agreed.
I believe that being an American Is the greatest thing that could happen to a person and here is why. In the story "Veterans Day: Never Forget Their Duty" is about veterans who are P.O.W.s in North Vietnam. They were captured and tortured.

They fought for the people who couldn't fight for themselves. I believe that the soldiers who stood on the front lines to fight in wars are very brave. I also believe that the soldiers who were not in the front lines were just as brave to be there to support our country. Even those who are peacetime veterans are important and should be honored just the same. Peacetime veterans are home and get to be around their family while knowing that at any time they could be called in to fight.
