Message from Board Chairman, Lt. General John B. Sylvester, on recent events in Ukraine.

“When America Goes to War…Our Families Go to War”

March 1, 2022

Dear Wounded Warriors Family Supporters
and our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marine Beneficiaries and Families:

For our troops, their families, and friends of Wounded Warriors Family Support.  We stand solidly behind the people of the Ukraine and, indeed, most of the world in condemning the Russian attack against a neighboring sovereign nation.  The brave citizens of that nation are suffering the inhumanity of war that those involved with WWFS, unfortunately, know all too well.  We can only pray and provide our own support to those in harms way as our nation and other nations of the free world work to stop the aggression happening now.  WWFS stands ready to offer any assistance to our own warriors or their families who might be impacted by that war.


John B. Sylvester
Lieutenant General, US Army, Retired
Chairman of the Board
