Linnington explained that 46 to 50 people a day are signing up for programs and services with the Wounded Warrior Project, noting that people may be under the impression that if there is not a “hot war,” there are no more needs, but that is not the case. Linnington shared that Wounded Warrior Project helps veterans get the assistance they need in a community that supports and understands them. 

Speaking of Green, Linnington said she is a role model of resilience for other veterans, and hopes that in sharing her story, others will realize that help is out there.
