Wounded Warrior Project and DISH Network Partner to Honor Veteran Resiliency
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. and ENGLEWOOD, Colo., Jan. 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) and DISH Network announced a new partnership that will highlight the nation's bravest who continue to make a difference. The partnership includes a co-created video series called "Continuing to Serve," featuring six warriors who are shaping the civilian world with their stories of hope, strength, and service after the military.
"We're humbled and thrilled to kick off this new, impactful partnership with DISH Network," said Brea Kratzert Todd, WWP vice president of business development. "Thanks to their support, we can highlight the dedication, resilience, and sheer tenacity of warriors as they overcome obstacles to reach their highest ambitions. I'm confident that together we'll reach other veterans in need and inspire our communities."
"We're honored to empower veterans with Wounded Warrior Project through the lens of six warriors' stories who continue to serve in new ways," said Brian Neylon, group president, DISH TV. "These veterans have proven their bravery and now champion others despite their own obstacles. Through this partnership, the series will spotlight six warriors' heroic journeys as they continue to navigate their unique road to recovery."
Warrior Videos Feature Inspiring Journeys of Healing
In the first video of the series, Retired Army Sgt. Angie Peacock recounts her military experience and the events that altered her life after her deployment to Iraq in 2003. After medically retiring, she spent years grappling with post-traumatic stress until she found hope, community, and healing through her involvement with WWP. She now spends her days traveling the country in her RV, helping other veterans on their road to recovery.
"Recovery is not always just about you," Angie said. "It's about helping other people who are suffering and can't quite articulate the way they're feeling. If you can do that, you don't know whose life you're going to touch."
View Angie's video of the series on Facebook, YouTube, or DISH Studio Channel 102.
Throughout the year, WWP and DISH will release five additional videos of warriors sharing their inspiring stories of bravery and resiliency in navigating the civilian world after service.
Because of supporters like DISH, warriors and their families never pay a penny for WWP's programs and services.
Join DISH Network in honoring and empowering warriors and their loved ones.
