Ill, Injured and Wounded Soldiers Benefit from Adaptive Sports Day with Loma Linda University PossAbilities
Date:6/7/2013

Loma Linda, Ca (PRWEB) June 07, 2013

Nearly 70 ill, injured and combat-wounded soldiers from the Army Reserve and National Guard filled Loma Linda University Drayson Center as part of the Adaptive Reconditioning Day on Wednesday, June 5. Hosted by LLU PossAbilities, in collaboration with the Community-Based Warrior Transition Unit-California (CBWTU), the Soldiers were exposed to various activities in an effort to expand their options for physical and recreational activity despite their personal limitations.

The men and women who attended the day-long event came from all over Southern California, including Mike Klementich, an activated National Guardsman in the United States Army, who calls Pasadena home. While serving in Afghanistan last year he suffered various injuries while working as a fueler, operating a 25,000-gallon fuel truck.

“This has been a great day so far,” Klementich said during a lunch break at Drayson Center. “Because of the CBWTU I am able to be home with my family, and that’s the best part. Being here today has been good so far. There are a lot more people like me here than I expected.”

Klementich, a father of three, affirms his injuries include a torn out shoulder, an injured knee and his foot needs reconstructive surgery, which will happen later this month. He admits that getting on a bike today was beneficial for his knee and looks forward to more cycling before he has surgery on his foot.

The Soldiers rotated through various sessions throughout the day including pool therapy, kayaking, stretching and exercise, wheelchair basketball and
