About The Warrior Jeep Team:
The Warrior Jeep Team was formed in 2015 by the Phillips’ family and several of their veteran family friends. The team wanted to bring awareness and support to all veteran’s but especially those Special Operations community, which is a community very important to the team. The Warrior Jeep team joined with Special Operations Warrior Foundation with the purpose of raising awareness and generating donations to help the foundation which does so much to support and care for the families of fallen and wounded Special Operations Forces veterans and their families.
The Warrior Jeep Team knows firsthand how hard it is to recover from combat related injuries, as most of us have been wounded in various military combat zones. We understand that many have been injured far worse than some of us have been, so this is our opportunity to help our brothers, sisters and their families.
The Warrior Jeep Team is mostly comprised of veterans from various branches of the military, many having been wounded in combat.
