Providing Weekends of Rest and Relaxation for
America's Wounded Heroes
The Warrior Weekend Program depends entirely on contributions from both individuals and corporations. American Legion Post 28 does not subsidize the program. It is a separate program within the Post 28 structure and its survival depends on contributions. All donations are tax deductible and a "Thank You" letter confirming every donation is issued for all contributions regardless of the amount.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The Warrior Weekend Program is not associated with either The Wounded Warrior Project or the Warrior Foundation. We do not have an executive board or a large paid staff. The administration and management of the Warrior Weekend Program is conducted entirely by volunteers. There are no employees. Every dollar received goes 100% directly to the program and the care an welfare of our wounded heroes. We do not discriminate as to the nature and/or circumstances of injury, unit of assignment or awards received. We are truly unique in that we do not want to fill a bus or an airplane with personnel. We would rather fill a van. In that way, we can be more personal and get to know the troops and their families by their first names.
American Legon Post 28 and the Warrior Weekend Program are very grateful to Mumford and Miller concrete Company of Middletown, Delaware for donating this van and trailer to the Warrior Weekend Program. The trailer is used to transport luggage, wheel chairs, strollers, etc.
