The 2018 Paralympic Winter Games begin March 9 in PyeongChang, South Korea. There are 18 Veterans among the 74 athletes representing Team USA at the Games, including eight Marines, seven Army Veterans, two Navy and one Air Force Veteran. VA supports many of them through the Veterans Monthly Assistance Allowance, which provides a monthly stipend for disabled Veterans training in Paralympic sports. Many of these Veterans have participated in VA’s national rehabilitation events managed by the Office of National Veterans Sports Programs and Special Events.
Best of luck to all of Team USA and thank you to our Veterans for their continued service. Coverage of the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games begins March 9. Check here for a listing of TV and streaming options and the complete schedule of coverage.
