Wounded Warrior Program

Supporting Our Veterans

The wars in Afghanistan and Iraq have created more injuries resulting in blindness than any conflict since the Civil War. At National Industries for the Blind, we understand the devastating effects the loss of sight can have on individuals and their families. For military personnel, this change can be especially daunting as they deal not only with the transition to civilian life but also with physical and emotional healing and legitimate concerns about the future. It is for this reason that we created the Wounded Warrior Program.

Seven out of 10 working age Americans who are blind are not employed, but we understand the experience and value that our military members and veterans bring to the workforce. The Wounded Warrior Program is designed to help these men and women secure employment in a wide variety of positions throughout NIB and our network of associated agencies across the country.
