Date:5/19/2009

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 19 /PRNewswire/ -- CSX Corporation Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael J. Ward has received the Tony Snow Award in recognition of his ongoing support of Wounded Warrior Project (WWP).

Ward, with a personal donation of $1 million last year, helped create the nation's first Training and Rehabilitation Advocacy Center (TRACK), which offers wounded warriors critical services to complete their transition to civilian lives. Ward's personal donation is in addition to CSX's $100,000 sponsorship of the WWP's Warriors to Work program.

"By funding and establishing TRACK, Michael Ward has provided the severely wounded men and women of our armed forces access to all of the skills, education and preparation necessary to not only find a job, but to find a career in which they thrive and succeed," said John Melia, WWP Founder.

Sportscaster Bob Costas hosted the WWP annual gala benefit dinner, which attracted a number of sports and entertainment celebrities, along with close to 700 guests, including 50 wounded warriors. The Tony Snow Award, named in honor of the late White House press secretary, is designed to recognize a citizen in corporate America or the media who has made a significant difference in the lives of injured men and women, and who has demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the WWP and its mission.

"We are proud in Jacksonville to have the national headquarters for Wounded Warrior Project, and to be the site for the first TRACK facility," Ward said in accepting the Tony Snow Award. "Our military men and women have given so much so that we can enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

Three other awards were given out:

  • The Talkhouse Award for Community Service - Johnny Damon, New York Yankees;
  • The George C. Lang Award - John Fernandez, Wounded Warrior & WWP Alumni member;
  • The John Melia Award For Warrior Service - John Melia, WWP Founder.
