that is amazing and will
change your life?

the 38th National Veterans
 Wheelchair Games this
 summer in Orlando, FL
(Jul 30–Aug 4, 2018). Come

Veterans competing in 19
different sporting events
while celebrating life and
the benefits that sports
and fitness has in our daily
lives. It is guaranteed that

eligible for VA health care.

Wheelchair Games are for
you, call Dave Tostenrude
