National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic - Ryan Majors

Online Exclusive posted Wednesday, September 19, 2012 - 9:37am

Veterans gather from across the country for the 2012 National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic.

Ryan Major, a 28-year-old U.S. Army veteran from Townson Md., is one of more than 100 disabled veterans participating in the National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic (NVSSC).  

Major, a double amputee and a veteran of Operation Enduring Freedom (Afghanistan), is reaching for new heights at the NVSSC which is designed to provide early intervention for veterans battling back from injury by not only strengthening their bodies, but overcoming and improving their overall being and self-worth through adaptive sports activities.

During this weeklong event, these veterans will learn adaptive methods for activities including surfing, sailing, cycling, kayaking, track and field, and also include a visit to the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista.

For more information, visit the Department of Veterans Affairs online.
