“Hit the Beach” – Wounded Warrior Project

Although New Hampshire has only 18 miles of shoreline, it’s where the Wounded Warrior Project hosted its “Hit the Beach” event yesterday. What a brilliant idea: Surfing as therapy for both the physical and emotional wounds of our returning veterans!  In its fourth year, the Wounded Warrior Project “Hit the Beach” event which was held at Hampton’s North Beach, New Hampshire hosted more than two dozen injured veterans.  The article from wmur.com reports: ” The local American Legion supplied food, Hampton’s surfing community supplies surfboards and wetsuits, and about 200 volunteers turned out to help 25 injured veterans get in the water and catch waves.” This heartwarming story comes complete with video. It certainly looks like everyone had a great time at the beach!
