Why: “Recovery Through Sport (TM):” Skiing and snowboarding are ideal outlets for injured service members to hone both physical agility and mental focus, skills that are critical to navigating their recovery.  Learning and practicing alongside fellow wounded service members, they also have the opportunity to trade stories, share strategies for coping with their injuries, and forge lasting friendships.
