The more people that attend, the more money that can be generated. Helping to create awareness of the service men and women that have given so much for their country and helping them to find a way to reintegrate back into life when they return is extremely important to us and Travel To Go. Our support of charitable causes such as this is an integral part of the company.”
The Wounded Warrior Project exists to honor and empower wounded warriors who incur service-connected wounds, injuries, and illnesses on or after September 11, 2001.
