The U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) Paralympic Military Program is sponsored, in part, by the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The program is designed to provide disabled veterans with post-rehabilitation support, mentoring, and opportunities for participation in sports programs in their hometowns.
Veterans who have participated in the program have disabilities including:
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Visual Impairment/Blindness
The program relies on mentor athletes to provide guidance and advice to new Paralympic athletes.
Sports camps are regularly held for beginners and more advanced athletes and are led by Paralympic athletes and coaches. Athletes can participate in both summer and winter sports events held at both the regional and national level.
