Many of you supporters out there make your donations to certain organizations and help deployed and wounded warriors more than ever could be conceived 20 years ago. For that I want to say Thank you from all of us that have received your support. As you know I support AnySoldier.com. Why? Its simple, because they give a shit about your warriors. I was deployed, asked for support for my Marines and got it when it really made a difference as we sat in the mountains of Tarin Kowt Afghanistan in a make shift out post. There was no request of us to promote the site. The site was promoted because it worked. It’s really very simple. AnySoldier crew isn’t in it for big sponsors or big pay checks no, they barley are “making it” especially during these times in our country.
Thus, it is interesting to see the below story and how things are manipulating some organizations original goal or focus. One can let politics influence their directions when one gets to be an influential organization. The trick is to remember why you decided to do their organization in the first place and the true meaning behind it without the distortion that can come when organizations get bigger and people use them to influence politics.
Some are saying that this is an avenue some companies like this are taking to support legislation that denies Veterans the right to keep arms, after they return, if they are injured with PTSD.
I do find it interesting that the WWP has stated that they would be glad to continue to recieve their annual donations from the many gun & hunting organizations but will not allow them to utilize or promote the WWP because they dont want to be associated with guns or knives.
Read the below and make your own decision. You all are smart people. The Wounded Warrior Project has done many great things in the past. It would be unfortunate if they let others influence their business plan to excel in what they foresee as greater gains.
