The Wounded Warrior Leave program began several years ago when local members of the Military Order of the Purple Heart pledged to give our Wounded Warriors what they wanted for Christmas – to travel home. Most of the Wounded Warriors don’t have the disposable income to pay for the trip, so the MOPH stepped up to the plate! Please support these wounded Marines this Christmas!

REMEMBER to RSVP by sending an email or by calling 252-638-6868.

Not attending? Just mail a donation of any size to Wounded Warrior Leave, 1914 Trent Blvd, New Bern, NC 28560.

Spread this invitation around the entire country! We accept donations from everywhere! Like us on Facebook/WoundedWarriorLeaveProgram, follow us on Twitter @WarriorLeave, and visit our website at WoundedWarriorLeave.org.
