Wounded Warrior Regiment

Marine Veteran Anardo Valdez and Coach Rodney Williams talk to the Marines during the Wounded Warrior Regiment Wheelchair Basketball Camp at the University of Central Florida in Orlando. Both men participated in the 1988 Summer Paralympics winning a gold medal for the United States in the sport of wheelchair basketball. 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.
