Anyone who served even just weeks in the military is familiar with the adage, “Hurry Up & Wait!”

It’s the military way. You rush to prepare the logistics for your mission and then, well, you wait for the action. You fill out your paperwork and then you realize that your move to another station has been delayed. You hurry to prepare for your deployment to a combat zone.  Then wait for your return trip home  that can be rescheduled for another wait.

Whoever says that patience is a virtue, has never served in the military. Our military members hurry up and wait everyday.

Worse yet, you could be hurried to a hospital with a life threatening injury and made to wait for months for the disability payments you need to care for your family. These are all real scenarios that are occuring for our military personnel everyday.

For those that return with life-altering wounds such as limb loss; Traumatic Brain Injury; the effects of toxic chemical exposure; Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder; and other injuries- They find that they are left fighting and waiting for treatments.

Here’s where we identify with hurrying up just to wait a bit longer. Our project and mission are huge. It takes momentum to move towards completion and yet in our spirits, we here at Wounded Warriors – Sons & Daughters of America believe that that both the hurrying up and the waiting are an important part of establishing the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center.

We are not static in our waiting. We are writing grants; talking with organizations; networking; getting the word out locally and nationally; connecting with locals and preparing programming.

Our waiting will not be in vain. Those families that are waiting to attend the Wounded Warriors Restoration Center will  be blessed by all the efforts of our staff, volunteers, and the many organizations and private donors that have chosen to support this vital work.

Help us to hurry up by donating towards this worthy cause! Thanks for your prayers and support!
