For the first time in the sport of sailing, disabled veterans of the armed forces from Israel and the United States of America will collaborate on a one-week educational and rehabilitation program in Newport, Rhode Island, with the assistance of Israelis RI. Disabled veterans from Sail To Prevail – The National Disabled Sailing Program (Newport, Rhode Island), and their counterparts from YamTov and Tikvot (Herzliya, Israel), will come together to share the challenges of their military experiences with the goal to re-enter civilian life as contributing members of society. The delegation of nine Israelis includes six Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), a sibling of a fallen soldier in action during military service, and two coaches. The intention is that, next year, a Rhode Island team of veterans with disabilities will visit Israel. To read more, click on the link.
