Military Matters: Organizations working together to help veterans

Organizations working to help vets

COLORADO SPRINGS - The Wounded Warrior Project recently offered veterans a chance to learn about the services available to them.

A crew with the organization educated veterans and helped them get into the holiday spirit.

Veterans got to take part in an ugly sweater contest and enjoy crafts and food at the event.

They also got the opportunity to network with other non-profit organizations

"With the wounded warrior project our mission is to honor and empower warriors and their families we do that through programs and different services we connect serve and empower,” said Melissa Shipley.

“There are several non-profits that have the same mission; we are all trying to help veterans. So we shouldn't be separated, we should all be together. Yeah, our missions might be a little bit different when it gets right down to it, but we are all trying to do the same thing," said Chase Cowan with Warrior, The Mission Continues.
