Secretary, Board of Directors Wounded Warriors
Shortly after midnight on Aug. 21, 2004, while leading three Humvees through Southwest
Baghdad to pick up a team of snipers, U.S. Army First Lieutenant Anthony Odierno’s
vehicle was attacked with a rocket-propelled grenade. The grenade smashed through
his door, took off a piece of his right arm, scraped across his chest, took off his left arm
and killed his driver. Two more grenades were fired, but they missed.
Waking up in Walter Reed Army Medical Center after his injury, Mr. Odierno saw a
Wounded Warrior Project backpack by his bedside. It reminded him that someone cared.
During a year of recovery and rehabilitation, he participated in a number of Wounded
Warrior Project programs, which helped renew his interest in sports. Since his injury, he
has completed two triathlons and routinely uses a special prosthesis to play golf and
score in the low 80s.
A 2001 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, he comes from a proud
military family. His father, General Ray Odierno, is the Chief of Staff of teh US Army and
the former top American commander in Iraq. His six-year Army career also included time
as an aide-de-camp to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Following his retirement from the Army, he earned an MBA from New York University’s
Leonard K. Stern School of Business. Today, Mr. Odierno puts his leadership and
management skills to work as a stadium operations executive for the New York Yankees.
His military awards and decorations include the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Mr.
Odierno joined the Wounded Warrior Project board of directors in 2009.
