Battleship IOWA is proud to be a safe haven for veterans as well as a resource and connection to programs dedicated to their well-being. Today, we're highlighting a truly special one:
Warrior Sailing
We chatted with Warrior Sailing director Ben Poucher to find out all about this life-changing program that gets wounded and injured veterans back into life by teaching basic sailing concepts.
Using specially-designed adaptive gear where necessary, the program offers warriors a place where they can once again be part of a team and build camaraderie they've been missing since leaving the military - all while discovering a sport they can enjoy for the rest of their lives.
