The History of Wounded Wear: Wounded Wear was created by a severely wounded Navy SEAL who while undergoing his own reconstruction and recovery recognized two key issues that were not addressed by other organizations. He struggled with his massive injuries to find clothing he could wear around the medical devices necessary for healing and he noticed that most people never assumed that his injuries were incurred on the battlefield fighting for our Freedom. These issues inspired him to create Wounded Wear to provide clothing and clothing modifications to America's wounded warriors, to promote awareness throughout the country of the sacrifices that wounded service members and their families have made in the name of Freedom; and to foster a sense of pride, camaraderie, determination, and strength of purpose, amongst them.
Wounded Wear provides custom complimentary clothing kits to wounded service members that bear the Wounded Wear logo and if necessary be modified to be worn around prosthetics or medical devices necessary for healing. Wounded Wear will also provide military uniform modifications so that service members can wear their uniforms around prosthetics or medical devices necessary for healing.
