Celebrate Wounded Warrior Project’s Decade of Service

At Survival Straps, we respect and acknowledge the enormous sacrifices made by our military men and women. Many of these service members return home from war with both physical and mental injuries including traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, or combat stress. We’re proud to support an organization that is committed to honoring and empowering this generation of wounded service members and help them successfully adjust back to life at home.

Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) began 10 years ago when several veterans and friends, moved by the stories of the first wounded service members returning home from Afghanistan and Iraq, took action to help others in need. Today, WWP serves tens of thousands of wounded servicemen and women and families with programs and services providing engagement opportunities, physical and mental health support, and economic empowerment.

In recognition of the 10-year anniversary of WWP, Survival Straps® is honored to further the mission with custom WWP Survival Straps products and a commemorative 10-year bracelet and key fob.

To get involved and learn more about WWP and their decade of service and lifetime commitment to injured service members and their families, please visit WWP10.org.

Survival Story: Survival Straps at Sea

Even on the most well-prepared of trips or adventures, unexpected events occur that can likely throw a wrench in your plans, which is why having 550 military spec paracord on hand is ideal. Peter learned this first-hand while on boat race with friends. He shared this exciting story with us:

“I was sailing in the Bermuda Race on my boat. The race was from Newport, Rhode Island to Bermuda. We were going into an overnight race, and we had stocked up on everything. We had a week’s worth of food and water. We had half a dozen sails or more and many yards of line. The race was 635 miles, and we hoped to sail that in 3 to 4 days. It was the second night when the seas got rough and the winds started to pick up. I believe it was about 2 am and out of nowhere there was a giant BOOM. The main sail’s halyard had snapped. I was half asleep on the rail when it happened and was suddenly smothered by a 100 pound sail. When I emerged from the cocoon of sail, I found the halyard at the mast flopping around. I needed a line or something fast. I realized that I had my Survival Straps Survival Bracelet on and decided to use that as the fixing line. So I cut an end and unraveled the band. All the while, we are going through 10 foot swells and 20-30 miles per hour wind. So, I spliced the two lines together and fixed the line with the military grade paracord. As a result, we got through the storm and the race; we finished in fourth place over all. What was amazing was the fact that when I took the sail down, the paracord was still tough and strong – even after having thousands of pounds of pressure on it for 50 hours straight!”Peter - BermudaWhat a view! Congrats on a successful trip, and we’re thrilled to have been a part of such a cool adventure.
