Veteran Paralympians Honored at Best of U.S. Awards, White House

Eighteen Veterans and active duty Servicemembers participated in the recent Winter Paralympics in Sochi, Russia on Team USA. Those distinguishing themselves received awards at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., this week at the Best of U.S. Awards.

The following day, all of the athletes from the U.S. Paralympic and Olympic teams were invited to the White House.  VA News was able to talk to several of the Veteran athletes about their Paralympic experience and the challenges they’ve overcome as disabled Veterans.

    Really motivating !
    They have made the whole world proud and have created inspiring grounds for many of us.
    They deserve the honour ! Congratulations !

  2. Just watched the documentary on this great sled hockey team on PBS tonight. As far as I’m concerned, they’ve already won their battle, but I’ll be praying that they win that Gold Metal which means so much to all of them.
    Best of luck to all Athletes, go TEAM USA!!!
