More than 48,000 U.S. troops have been wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thousands face life-changing, lifelong injuries. Imagine if you had lost both legs above the knee, were missing fingers, and had severe damage to your hands and forearms. Imagine if these injuries were your daily struggle – all day, every day, for the rest of your life.
What would you give to have the chance to do what you used to take for granted? Now imagine that someone could help you achieve what seems impossible.
At Blue Water Warriors that’s what we do - provide a revolutionary means for injured warriors to work towards recovery and reclaim capabilities lost.
The Healing Power of the Ocean
Getting away from it all can be the best medicine for veterans with severe injuries. What better place to do it than on the ocean? Blue Water Warriors gets the injured out on the ocean to feel the wind again, catch a fish, ride a wave or spot a whale.
We have custom-built boats to get them there and inspired adaptive sports programs that help veterans meet recovery goals. We take wounded veterans and their families out on the water to participate in activities that restore their bodies, minds and spirits, and contribute to their lasting recovery.
You can help
If a veteran who has lost three limbs can fight for a new future, surely we can help him or her get there. Maybe you want to buy safety equipment for our boats, or a storage compartment for prosthetic limbs, or a locking mechanism so wheel chairs on the boat are secure, stable and safe.
Our nation’s wounded veterans put it all on the line to protect us. It’s our turn now to put it on the line for them.
Please donate now and help a veteran’s recovery goals become reality.
