Veteran Amputee Team rumbles with Washington Redskins & NFL alumni


WASHINGTON (Army News Service, Nov. 18, 2013) — It wasn’t smash-mouth football, but there were moments when the game spilled into a rumble and tumble filled with laughs and friendly bantering between the Wounded Warrior Amputee Football Team and a squad of seasoned NFL veterans and Washington Redskins Alumni.

The game was in conjunction with Warrior Care Month, an observance established by the Defense Department in 2008, as a way of making the public aware of the sacrifices of wounded, ill or injured service members. The month was also designed as a way to showcase these men and women, who rebuilt through resiliency what they once felt were shattered lives.
