James Gandolfini’s Focus on Wounded Vets Lives On

Family asks that donations be made to Wounded Warrior Project

With funeral services for actor James Gandolfini slated for Thursday in Gotham, his family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, those hoping to honor and mourn the late “Sopranos” star make a donation to the Wounded Warrior Project.

Nonprofit was founded in 2002 and focuses on providing aid to and empowering injured service members. The org does not limit the scope of injury to physical ones accrued on the battlefield — those coping with mental hurts including PTSD are attended to by Wounded Warrior Project as well.

HBO cites the organization and its mission as one that Gandolfini was passionate about, made evident by Gandolfini’s 2007 documentary “Alive Day Memories,” which aired on HBO centered on wounded soldiers returning home from Iraq.

Here, “NBC Nightly News” profiles Gandolfini’s work on “Alive Day Memories” and the inspiration for his work with wounded vets. For more information on the Wounded Warrior Project and to make a donation, visit the Wounded Warrior Project website here.
