Amputees being treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center,
Washington, DC, wrapped up three days of the third annual Vail
Veterans Program March 5 at the world-class Colorado ski resort.
The 24 veterans were wowed by the hospitality and welcome of Vail
Mountain and the Vail community, noted Donna Miles, in a release
from the American Forces Press Service. Not only did they enjoy the
red-carpet treatment with free lodging, meals, ski gear, lift
tickets, and lessons, they skied and snowboarded their way to new
emotional and physical milestones.
