WWP Recommends Veterans Visit Military Landmarks

Based in Walnut Creek, California, Mike Elmore serves as owner and CEO of Sun Mountain, LLC, a firm that works in the civil and energy infrastructure sectors. The firm provides services to clients such as the California utility companies, including project management and relocation research. A United States Air Force veteran, Mike Elmore is also a longtime supporter of the Wounded Warrior Project.


As veterans look to begin taking their summer vacations with family, the Wounded Warrior Project suggests military landmarks as potential landing spots for those traveling, such as the USS Arizona Memorial, Castillo de San Marcos, or Gettysburg. These experiences provide one-of-a-kind opportunities to pay homage to their military roots while sharing the moment with their families.

All told, there are approximately 270 parks in the United States that have some connection to the country’s military heritage. Through the Blue Star Parks program, veterans and their loved ones can visit these parks at no cost. Wounded Warrior Project data indicates that nearly 30 percent of veterans say that physical activity helps them deal with anxiety and stress; visiting these parks is a good activity to undertake for just that purpose.
