Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Camp

Lance Cpl Matthew Grashen from Wounded Warrior Detachment Walter Reed (left) and Lance Cpl. Kevin Sheehy from WWBn-East practice speed drills during the Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Camp at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Marines and Marine veterans participating in the camp will enhance their skills in the areas of passing and shooting, as well as both defensive and offensive techniques. The Warrior Athlete Reconditioning Program (WAR-P) provides activities and opportunities for wounded, ill or injured Marines to train as athletes, while increasing their strength so they can continue with military service or develop healthy habits for life outside the service.
