Screen Shot 2013-01-26 at 1.00.53 PM

The objective of the family weekends is to teach the entire family a sport they can continue to do together after their return home. In addition to the difficulties of living with an amputation, multiple amputations or other serious injuries on an individual level, a soldier’s family is also deeply affected by the demands of the injury. A secondary goal of these events is to allow the wounded soldiers and Marines to spend quality rehabilitative time with their families. Soldiers are encouraged to bring their spouses and children with the goal of the event to be the inclusion of the disabled troops back into family activities. All scheduled activities are family friendly.
