The Wiregrass Wounded Veterans Committee (WWVC) provides an avenue for community, civic, and business leaders and organizations of the Wiregrass area, to include Fort Rucker, to honor the service and sacrifices made by Wounded and Disabled, and Ill Veterans and their family members.

WWVC was established in 2010 by the Enterprise Lions Club to coordinate community-wide support for Wounded Warriors attending the Club’s annual Boll Weevil 100-Mile Bicycle Ride and 10-Kilometer Run.

The committee pays for the food, lodging and entry fees of warriors participating in the Boll Weevil 100 as a part of their recovery and rehabilitation program. We encourage their family members to attend and many do.

WWVC funds are administered and accounted for through the Enterprise Lions Club Foundation, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

To date, WWVC has donated over $200,000 to participating U.S. Army Medical Command Warrior Transition Units at Fort Benning, Fort Campbell, Fort Gordon, Fort Jackson and Fort Stewart.

In addition, WWVC assists the Fort Rucker Directorate of Family, Morale, Welfare, and Recreation (DFMWR) with events for Wounded and Disabled Veterans. In (2015) we donated $15,000 for the purchase of a handicap accessible travel trailer.
