JACKSONVILLE, Fla -- Andrew Coughlan knows coming home from war isn't always easy. He was medically discharged from the Army in 2006.
"Came back from Iraq and I was diagnosed with PTSD, had a lot of readjustment issues," he said.
Coughlan credits Wounded Warriors with saving his life. But it takes money to keep the program going. So retailers and manufacturers are stepping up in a major way.
"This Sunday were dropping a coupon insert in the newspaper in, I think, 53 million households throughout the United States," said Gary Chartrand with Acosta Sales and Marketing.
His company brought all the key players together. And by the help of grocery shoppers armed with that coupon mailer, millions of dollars will filter in.
"The consumer can actually go into the grocery store buy the products that they're most familiar with go to the website and get the coupons to help with their savings and when they dot hat they're actually helping the Wounded Warrior project," Chartrand said.
Last year, they raised more than three and a half million dollars. This year, they're expecting even more. Coughlan says it is an easy way to make sure the program can continue making a difference.
"These injuries that the warrior suffers they're there for a lifetime so raising awareness its a lifetime commitment that wounded warrior is giving to the warriors and their families that were always going to be here," he said.
56 different manufacturers are participating in the mailer. And Action News is told it contains over $50 in coupon savings.
