Operating out of Walnut Creek, California, Mike Elmore serves as owner and CEO of Sun Mountain, LLC, a company that provides professional and field services in the civil infrastructure and energy sectors. A veteran of the United States Air Force, Mike Elmore supports the efforts of the Wounded Warrior Project.

In partnership with Publix and through the Wounded Warrior Project’s Physical Health and Wellness initiative, veterans were recently treated to a free cooking class in order to help them learn how to prepare healthy foods at home. Teachers were on hand to educate the veterans about how to determine the number of calories in their food, as well as macronutrient and mineral levels they need to be aware of when choosing dishes.

Veterans on hand expressed appreciation for the class, citing it as an example of how they can make small yet meaningful changes to their lives in order to become healthier. The event also served as a bonding experience for these wounded vets, who sometimes struggle to maintain social bonds after returning to civilian life.

Based in Walnut Creek, California, Mike Elmore is the owner and chief executive officer of Sun Mountain, LLC, a firm that specializes in civil infrastructure as well as energy services. Outside of his work, Mike Elmore is a committed philanthropist and supports many charitable organizations, including the Wounded Warrior Project.

The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) recently held a comprehensive seminar in San Antonio, Texas, aimed at helping injured veterans deal with some of the common issues that plague them. They attended training workshops on important topics, such as mental health and peer support.

The role of peer support is particularly vital for wounded veterans, who uniquely look to one another for encouragement and mentoring when dealing with the challenges of reintegration into civilian life. The strength of their military bonds serves as an ironclad support mechanism as they look to recover from both their physical and psychological injuries.

Through events such as the one in San Antonio, WWP is able to offer numerous services to injured veterans that help address their physical and mental health, as well as their vocational training and social support.
