U.S. Army Veteran Luke Murphy
When service members were injured in Iraq or Afghanistan, they were flown from the battlefield, and often found themselves in medical centers with nothing but the hospital gown. Over the past 10 years, the Wounded Warrior Project has donated more than 17,000 backpacks of comfort items to newly-injured service members. The Wounded Warrior Project outdoor outings and bike races that help wounded troops stay active and part of their community. “Life-changing” and “uplifting” are the words Luke Murphy chose to describe Wounded Warrior Project. An Army veteran who lost his right leg above the knee to a roadside bomb in 2006, Murphy received a Wounded Warrior backpack and as he recovered from his wounds, he participated in nearly 20 Wounded Warrior programs and services.
