VA to host sports clinic in San Diego to assist in rehabilitation of injured veterans

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, or VA, announced it will hold the second annual National Veterans Summer Sports Clinic in San Diego 20-25 September. Recently injured veterans will be able to learn how to kayak, sail and surf and engage in other summer sports activities.

"As Americans, we have a covenant to care for those who have served our nation with honor," said Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric K. Shineski in a press release. "VA is proud to fulfill this covenant through events such as the Summer Sports Clinic, which gives injured veterans an opportunity to rediscover their potential and redefine their capabilities."
