Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team Takes on NFL Alumni

(YouTube link)

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team, a group of athletes who lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan, played a scrimmage against a group of retired NFL players in November. Some played with prosthetics, some in wheelchairs, and some just as they are. Does it really matter who won the game? No, but you'll find out anyway.

The WWAFT play games like this all over, which helps them reach out to local veterans and raise awareness of the many veterans who have much to to contribute despite their injuries. Their next big event is a game against a team consisting of retired NFL players and the New York Fire Department's 9/11 first responders, in a game called the Super Bowl Challenge in New Jersey on January 29th. -via With Leather
