While it takes strength to serve in the Armed Forces, it takes a different kind of strength to live life beyond injury.

It could be the strength to learn to walk again, or to ask for help after 15 years of suffering in silence.

Together, we can help our wounded veterans overcome their daily battles and thrive. Veterans like David.

Meet David


Strong is treating people on the battlefield with life-changing injuries. Stronger is living with life-changing injuries yourself.

Watch as David talks about life beyond injury.


As an Army medic saving lives on the battlefield, David thought he knew what strength was, but when he suffered life-changing injuries himself, he had to find a new kind of strength. The strength to adjust to life using a wheelchair, constant severe pain and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

With support from Help for Heroes, David didn’t have to fight his battle alone, but there are many other injured veterans like him who need us.
