There But Not There launches in the USA

Iconic Soldier Silhouettes are beginning to pop up in Times Square, the Golden Gate Bridge and Washington DC...


The There But Not There project has now launched in the US, with Soldier Silhouettes appearing at iconic locations across America. The project aims to commemorate the over 100,000 American lives lost in WWI and raise money for the Invictus Games Foundation and charities who provide vital support to veterans across the United States and Great Britain. 

The campaign will see six foot tall, life size Soldier Silhouettes installed at iconic sites around the United States to remind people of the contribution made by U.S. and allied forces during World War One. The aim of the campaign is to encourage members of the public to buy 10 inch versions of the silhouettes, which are made by veterans, to raise funds for U.S. and British military charities.

There But Not There began in the UK and has already raised nearly $3 million since it launched eight weeks ago. Funds raised by the U.S. campaign will support the American Invictus Games team.

This launch will see silhouettes installed at Times Square in New York, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, the Gateway Arch in St Louis and memorial sites in Washington DC.

Major Ivan Castro, a former U.S. Invictus Games competitor and There But Not There Ambassador is launching the campaign, with support also given by General Stanley McChrystal - former Joint Special Operations (JSOC) and International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) Commander.

Walking With The Wounded is a proud beneficiary of the There But Not There campaign. Funds raised will go to supporting our most vulnerable veterans.
