An encouraging testimonial from The Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy

Dec 16, 2014
Creating IT Futures Foundation works with numerous organizations to bring military veterans and their families into IT through training programs, grants and voucher programs. The Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy is one.

We are pleased to share the following letter from Jim Wiggins and Sam Maroon, senior technical trainers at the Wounded Warrior Cyber Combat Academy. Thank you for all you do, Jim and Sam. We’re happy that the Creating IT Futures Foundation and CompTIA can be a part of this rewarding program!

Kathleen Mrazek and the staff of CompTIA:

Through the W2CCA, Jim and I are privileged to know heroes and those that enable heroes. Your contributions to the W2CCA over the past two (2) years have directly contributed to the following successes:

You've helped gain Cyber Security employment for Wounded Warriors in the following organizations, mid-training:
  • Honeywell
  • IronNet
  • Booz Allen
  • and others
You've helped gain Cyber Security internships for Wounded Warriors in the following organizations, mid-training:
  • NIST – NCCoE
  • NASA
  • and others
We cannot begin to describe our gratitude, so I close this email with the Warrior's Creed (the words of the late David Vernon Keyes):

In our hearts we are one, and will always be, guardians of freedom.
We serve the people of the United States.
We will never accept defeat - we will never quit.
Despite our wounds, we will fight on - in a different battle and with different skills.

Very Respectfully,
Jim Wiggins and Sam Maroon
