This time, his family got to ice skate together and meet other veterans and families.
"It helps with your mental health when you talk to other warriors," Michael said. "It's difficult to talk to family – even though they support you every time – but they might not understand what you're going through. It's more comfortable talking with other veterans because they've been there."
