Wounded Warrior Project
Since 2018, José Ramos has served as the Wounded Warriors Project’s Vice President of Government and Community Relations. In 2004, while serving on his third combat tour, Jose was severely injured in combat operations which included a left arm amputation, lung contusions, nerve damage to his left, back injuries and numerous shrapnel wounds. Since that time, he has demonstrated incredible grit and determination by completing a series of amazing physical achievements, including the New York City Marathon, as well as competing around the globe as a member of the US Paratriathlon Team. Equally as impressive, is his commitment to service which has led him to positions both in and out of government, but always on the side of Veterans. Prior to joining WWP, Jose served in the Office of the Secretary of Defense as the Special Assistant for Constituent Inquiries and as an appointed Commissioner on President Bush’s Commission on Care for America’s Returning Wounded Warriors. Jose’s background as a combat-wounded Navy corpsman informs his current role and helps guide WWP’s efforts to promote policies that support the needs of America’s wounded warriors and their families.
