Our Mission

HUGE Mahalo Nui Loa to you and the WWO organization for a FABULOUS year of events in 2018! Words can't express the joy you've brought to our Navy Wounded Warriors. Your services bridge a gap that we couldn't otherwise fill.

On behalf of the Air Force Wounded Warriors & Families in attendance at last nights Holiday Luau, a BIG MAHALO to you and your team for support and outreach of community Care to our Warriors and Families night out. You and yours work diligently to make events stress free and fun with variety for Warriors and I know they appreciate that. Your organization is “One of the Good Things about Hawai’I” (that slogan is from KGMB News Station). What would have been good is that we get the Colonel (Ret) up on stage dancing with the entertainers. Mahalo Mahalo Mahalo
