Disabled Veterans Winter Sports Clinic
Finding a New Way to Fly — In April 2006, while traveling to Iraq on an Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) mission, the plane Lt. Col Ted Moorman was traveling on crashed and the next thing he knew he was being airlifted to a trauma center in Delaware. With life threatening injuries, much like Humpty Dumpty, he was put back together again and then airlifted to Milwaukee so that he could begin his recovery closer to home.

“We have the privilege of cheering our sons on as they continue to beat the odds…”
