You can’t put a price tag on an opportunity to come to a place as soothing as Mammoth for these Wounded Warriors - to feel like they’re not alone, that they’re not forgotten. It’s a chance to fundamentally save or change a person for the rest of their life.

Participating as a supporter of the Wounded Warrior program at Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra allows our family to say a simple thank you. Our efforts will never be able to equal the sacrifice of these heroes, but in some small way we hope they feel our deep and earnest appreciation for their service.

I have been up to Mammoth and watched Kathy Copeland and her incredible team firsthand. The work they do for our wounded, ill and injured Marines is amazing, and gives recovering Marines and sailors self-esteem and self-confidence like few things I have seen.

I felt some peace of mind here within myself, which I haven’t had in more than five years since returning from Iraq.

The whole experience with all of Disabled Sports Eastern Sierra was really a huge confidence boost for me. I left with high self-esteem and motivation to strive for more.
