Welcome to the Wall Street Warfighters Foundation
Wall Street Warfighters Foundation grew from the idea that given the opportunity, service-disabled veterans will excel in a work environment where integrity and moral courage are valued and where their physical challenges are not a factor.
A Message from General Peter Pace:
Our Nation asks much of her military, and is committed to improving and enriching the lives of service members who have made great sacrifice. The Wall Street Warfighters Foundation offers a unique opportunity for industry leaders to contribute to the life of a wounded warrior in a very meaningful way. We at the Wall Street Warfighters Foundation believe that America owes a tremendous debt of gratitude to those who have borne the physical and mental injuries of battle to preserve the freedoms we hold dear.
The Wall Street Warfighters Foundations is designed to mentor and train wounded warriors interested in a financial services careers and veteran employment. Our program helps service-disabled veterans realize financial security, professional satisfaction, and personal independence. Corporate partners benefit by adding proven problem solvers to their organization’s workforce, and are enriched through the mentorship and leadership opportunities the program offers.
We encourage eligible veterans and interested industry leaders to contact us and learn more about the program.
