Wounded Warrior Project Veterans Feel the Love at Cincinnati Reds Game



CINCINNATI, Oct. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- After months of support from the Cincinnati Reds baseball team, veterans served by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) enjoyed one more evening game at the Great American Ball Park. Since July, the Cincinnati Reds and pitcher Scott Feldman have been donating tickets to warriors and their families as part of a campaign designed to give back to injured veterans. Army veteran Joseph Fichter said it was humbling to learn about Scott's background with the military and how he chooses to help the warriors served by WWP.

Warriors enjoy the festivities at a Reds Game, hosted in part with Wounded Warrior Project.

"It was awesome that Scott took time out of his day to sign items and speak with us," Joseph said. "Also, during batting practice we got see to Joey Votto give a ball and pair of batting gloves to one of the warriors and his son because his son loves Joey."

Joseph is a true Reds fan, good seasons or bad, and his special plus-one at the game was his daughter, Teegan. The baseball game was more than just a chance for warriors and their family members to come together for a night of camaraderie ? it was a chance to build support systems that help with recovery from the wounds of war.

"These events are always great for family, because Wounded Warrior Project staff always do a great job making everyone feel welcome," Joseph said. "That's not just because they're organized, but because of the love and camaraderie that they allow you to feel."

Thanks to generous donors, WWP programs and services are offered free of charge to warriors, their caregivers, and families, and they assist with mental health, physical health and wellness, career and benefits counseling, connecting warriors with one another and their communities, and long-term care for the most seriously wounded.
