I am a veteran. I am a female veteran. I am a disabled veteran.
Every summer I look forward to the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. This year was my 9th year of competition, and I’ve enjoyed every bit of it. I participate in events ranging from 9-ball to softball to track and field.
This is a video from the games (as they are known among all of us competitors) for 2016. It is the 36th year for the NVWG. I plan to continue to go to these games for as long as I am able.
Also during the summer, I compete in the Valor Games, which are for disabled veterans and active duty personnel. I have competed in field, hand cycling, and this year started learning to play Pickleball. It would take me a long time to explain what that is so here is a link for further information about this fun game.
