Rockaway, N.Y. (July 23, 2015) — Before being injured in Afghanistan, Brandon Dodson was an avid surfer throughout his youth in San Diego. After losing both of his legs as the result of an improvised explosive device blast while on deployment in Afghanistan, Dodson was unsure if he would ever be able to surf again. Through adaptive water sports like those offered by Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP), Dodson and his fellow wounded service members can get back to catching waves and being active on the water.
In early July, Dodson and dozens of his fellow wounded service members were brought to Rockaway Beach in New York for the 11th annual Adaptive Water Sports Festival, hosted by WWP. During the four-day festival, injured service members and their families were introduced to adaptive versions of water skiing, surfing, scuba diving, and many other sports — proving that despite their injuries, they could still maintain an active lifestyle.
