The training camp was hosted by the Wounded Warrior Regiment's Warrior Athletic Reconditioning Program (WAR-P) coaches and staff. These dedicated professionals work with wounded, ill, and injured Marines and veterans throughout the year to identify recovery goals and develop adaptive sporting activities that foster feelings of pride and accomplishment essential to recovery.
