VAIL FIREHOUSE HOSTS WOUNDED VETERANS FOR DINNER
For nearly two decades the Vail Veterans Program has been bringing military injured to the Vail Valley for adaptive snowsports, bonding, healing and a home cooked meal.
The participants of the program are invited to Vail via recommendations from staff at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland; Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; and the Naval Medical Center in San Diego, California. They come out to Vail for four days of skiing, snowboarding and ski biking with the help of the Vail Adaptive Ski and Snowboard instructors. From Day 1 to Day 4, changes are made and bonds are formed.
