38th National Veterans Wheelchair Games


[Music] For a long time, with my traumatic brain injuries, I could barely tie my shoes or walk on my own. Then I get to the Minneapolis VA They have these meetings where the traumatic brain injury doctor and the PTs and the social workers all come together, and they started connecting me up with all the sports and the activities. I didn’t even know there were men and women’s basketball teams, community teams. I would like to reach out to all veterans. When you want to improve that you want to get better, you do all the surgeries; you see all the doctors but the activity, the sports is an important part of staying healthy. You can still do the things that you want to do. The VA is there for you? Whatever type of equipment or whatever you need to help you get yourself together, as far as your rehabilitation, the VA will help you with that. And as far as being able to participate in various sports, they have these games to get the guys out, to get them motivated to be able to try to continue to do things. That, I think is a real great thing. Don’t just sit back and say “I can’t do it.” Challenge yourself. National Veterans Wheelchair Games! [cheering] [music: Unstoppable] [laughter] Oh no you didn’t flip your head at me. [music] All right!
