Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) December 17, 2013

MiraFlex announced today plans to donate contributions and efforts to assist service members who have been injured in the line of duty. Proceeds raised at The Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs 2013 in Atlanta Georgia will be donated to the nonprofit organization Wounded Warrior Project (WWP), and will support a full range of programs and services for this generation of injured veterans and their families.

Over 47,000 servicemen and women have been injured in the recent military conflicts. In addition to the physical wounds, it is estimated as many as 400,000 service members live with the invisible wounds of war including combat-related stress, major depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder. Another 320,000 are believed to have experienced a traumatic brain injury while on deployment.

WWP’s 18 programs and services are uniquely structured to nurture the mind and body, and encourage economic empowerment and engagement.

The Australian Open Wild Card Playoffs 2013 is hosted by Life Time Fitness in Norcross Georgia, December 20th -22st sponsored by MiraFlex. http://www.australianwildcard.com.

"It is my privilege to announce we are now a Proud Supporter of The Wounded Warrior Project," says Bob Bray, Executive Vice President at MiraFlex based in Oklahoma City and decorated Viet Nam Veteran. "It's our way to give back to the Veterans from all the conflicts and make a difference doing it." Bob was drafted in 1969 and served in Viet Nam as a Squad Leader for 11 months before returning to the States. He received a Bronze Star and the Army commendation medal for Valor.
