Vail Veterans Program welcomes an Israeli group: Israeli, U.S. veterans share a bond
VAIL – Those who have been invited to Vail Veterans Program events say those programs have changed their lives. Now that life-changing mountain therapy is reaching out to other veterans from other countries.
The program this week has welcomed a group of seven veterans of the Israeli Defense Force. Those veterans are supported by Brothers for Life, an Israeli group with much the same mission as the Vail Veterans Program — providing injured veterans with support and respite from their day-to-day lives.
A Tuesday reception at Larkspur restaurant welcomed the seven Israelis, along with a couple of Vail Veterans Program participants and a number of local supporters.
