The National WWII Museum Receives Grant from Wounded Warrior Project®

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The National WWII Museum Receives Grant from Wounded Warrior Project®
Museum to Offer Paid Internships and Training to Injured Soldiers


NEW ORLEANS (October 15, 2013) - The National WWII Museum today announced that it has received a grant from Wounded Warrior Project, a non-profit veteran service organization whose mission is to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. The $30,000 grant will expand the Museum's ability to aid injured soldiers' return to civic life and improve their experience of reentering the job market.

The Museum is offering several three-month paid internship opportunities in various departments for post-9/11 Wounded Warriors or their immediate family members. This program is designed to give veterans and their family members an opportunity to add valuable career-related experiences to their already-honed leadership, communication and teamwork skills.

"One of our most important missions is to pass on the values of the World War II generation, which placed a premium on caring for returning veterans and easing their transition back into the workforce," said Museum President and CEO Gordon H. "Nick" Mueller. "This wonderful grant program will advance our ongoing efforts to honor and serve today's military veterans and their families."

Just as the mission of the Wounded Warrior Project is to honor and empower wounded warriors, The National WWII Museum is dedicated to paying tribute to the sacrifices that veterans make on behalf of our country. Through an array of unique education programs and interpretive exhibits, the Museum celebrates the American Spirit, the teamwork, optimism, courage and sacrifice of the men and women who served on the battlefront and the Home Front.

"The Wounded Warrior Project grant program allows us to support the good work and expertise of a broad spectrum of organizations that are dedicated to meeting the needs of injured servicemembers," said Steven Nardizzi, executive director, Wounded Warrior Project. "We are very proud of the collaboration and commitment that the grant program fosters to help ensure this generation of injured servicemembers is the most successful and well-adjusted in our nation's history."

In its second year of operation, the Wounded Warrior Project Grants Program continues to work with organizations that provide injured service members with unique, specialized programs and services, often in remote service areas. During two review cycles each year, Wounded Warrior Project carefully selects the grant recipients, and to date has provided support to over 70 organizations nationwide.

It is estimated over 50,000 servicemen and women have been physically injured in recent military conflicts, another 320,000 have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment, and as many as 400,000 additional service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder.

Interested internship candidates should submit a resume online or mail to Human Resources, 945 Magazine St., New Orleans, LA 70130.
