Vail Veterans Program hosts 23 wounded military on slopes this week
VAIL – From being nervous and overwhelmed to now being inspirational and thankful, that progression exemplifies what Crystal Radice-Dunblazer, a retired Army nurse, experienced with the Vail Veterans Program.
Radice-Dunblazer is a below-the-knee amputee and had her amputation done at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. She was there for most of 2019 doing physical therapy before the surgery and rehabilitation after the amputation. It was while there that she was selected to come to the Vail Veterans Program in January of 2020 and attend one of the Vail-based nonprofit’s Winter Family Program.
The Vail Veterans Program provides military injured and their families with innovative, transformative and inspirational programs that build confidence and improve lives.
