WHO WE ARE
Since 2015, the 501 (c)(3) nonprofit Wounded Warrior O’hana has provided enriching experiences for our wounded military members, veterans and their families.
Our mission, honoring those who have sacrificed so much.
Our membership is not limited and includes civilians, active military personnel, retired military servicemen and women, veterans, and volunteers who have a passion for enhancing the well-being of our nation's wounded warriors and their families.
We support high-quality events that contribute to the overall health, safety and enjoyment of our wounded military veterans and their families.
The Wounded Warrior Ohana is an all-volunteer organization, which means 100 percent of your support directly benefits our wounded veterans and their families.
