Warrior Care Month has been established to recognize those who have volunteered to answer our nation’s call during both peacetime and war. With that service, some have suffered injuries that left them ill, wounded, or injured. This month also recognizes those caregivers, both personal and professional, who have remained dedicated to these service members while overcoming life’s obstacles post-injuries.
Staff Sgt. Brian Boone was recovering at the Warrior Transition Battalion in Fort Sam Houston, Texas after losing his leg from severe injuries sustained while deployed to Afghanistan. During his recovery, he produced a training plan that not only paved a rehabilitation path for other wounded, ill, and injured service members through recreational sports, but ultimately led to his important role as a teammate of the San Antonio Spurs wheelchair basketball team.
