National Veterans Wheelchair Games!

This is the other reason my mom made the trip out to see me...the wheel chair games. She and Nick volunteered with me all week long. This has got to be one of the most inspiring things I have ever been apart of. Young and old with the common bond of being wheelchair bound, but not letting it slow them down. There was everything from kayaking, power soccer, rugby, trapshooting, track and field and even and obstacle course. These veterans were tough and rough! It was really neat to be able to talk with the Vets and hear their stories.

The closing ceremonies were held at the Wings Over the Rockies Museum, the speeches, food and videos were an awesome tribute to the men and women that serve/served our country!
