How Wounded Vets Help Kids With Limb Differences at Special Camp

Playing Kids With Limb Differences Play Sports With Wounded Vets at Special Camp

At this special camp in Virginia Beach, kids with limb differences play sports with wounded veterans

The camp, which is a week long and run by USA Patriots, sees children from across the U.S. come together with the vets. 

"We wanna show you we got knocked down, but we got right back up," Josh Wege, one of the veterans involved, said. 

Wege lost his legs in Afghanistan after the car he was in hit an IED. But he doesn't let that stop him from competing. 

"I don't put on socks and shoes in the morning," he said. "I strap legs onto my body to be able to walk. So life taught me perspective. My injury taught me perspective. And I can share that with anyone else that comes out." 

And the kids' parents love seeing the confidence the experience instills. 

"He is determined to be a Paralympian," said one mom of her son.
