Jacksonville, Fla.—General RV Center is proud to be a major sponsor with Wounded Warrior Project™ (WWP) in fulfilling a life-long dream of a wounded Iraqi veteran.
Eric Edmundson is a retired Army Sergeant and Purple Heart recipient who suffered a traumatic brain injury. Eric requires full-time assistance, but through the love and support of his family, he has made tremendous progress. His dream of a hunting “Grand Slam” will be fulfilled, thanks to the support of the WWP, and many generous sponsors and volunteers.
The trip will consist of a 9,000 mile roundtrip excursion, hunting game from alligator and bison to black bear and antelope. Eric and his father Ed will travel together, and plan to hunt in eight states—Florida, Montana, Texas, Missouri, Colorado, Iowa, Idaho and Wyoming. On August 8, Eric will be presented with a truck and toy hauler travel trailer that will carry him on this adventure.
General RV Center issued a statement, “General RV Center is proud to be a sponsor of this project, and was honored to also prepare the travel trailer for this amazing journey.”
Over 45,000 of our nation’s armed forces have been physically wounded during the current military conflicts. Hundreds of thousands more are estimated to be recovering from invisible wounds of war, including post-traumatic stress disorder, major depression, and traumatic brain injury. WWP assists wounded warriors and their families through a holistic approach to their recovery. Whether through caregiver retreats, combat stress programs, career and education services, or adaptive sporting opportunities, WWP empowers warriors with the tools essential to not just survive their injuries but to thrive and achieve personal and professional success. General RV Center added, “It’s impossible not to be inspired by Eric and all that he has given to our country. This was our chance to give back, and encourage others to support Wounded Warrior Project.”
WWP is a national, nonpartisan organization headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida. To get involved and learn more, visit woundedwarriorproject.org.
