Wounded Warrior Project Puts Veterans on Ice at Hockey Boot Camp

By Wounded Warrior Project, Special for  USDR

As 2016 Stanley Cup celebrations are winding down, a new season is just on the horizon. But that does not mean the action on the ice has come to a complete stop, as a group of injured veterans learned during a recent hockey boot camp. The camp was hosted by Wounded Warrior Project® and the NYTEX Sports Centre, home of the NAHL Lone Star  Brahmas.

Hockey director Knute Anderson; Frank Trazzera, president and owner of the Lone Star Brahmas; and parents and players of the Texas Junior Brahmas hockey team greeted warriors when they arrived at the ice rink. The parents and junior players assisted participants by providing hydration and helping them gear up in skates, pads, and  helmets.
