David M. Caruth, Head of Military segment, said of the series,

"We believe it’s our duty to support organizations that care for the men and women who have served our country and are proud to continue our efforts by partnering once again with Wargaming. What these organizations do to support our nation’s heroes is commendable and it’s through programs like the Verizon Wounded Warrior Series that we help to raise awareness and much needed funds to assist with their missions to help our soldiers.”
