dozens of disabled veterans are marking the 12th anniversary of the sept. 11 terror attacks with climbs in yosemite national park in memory of those who died.
The veterans’ disabilities are both physical and emotional in nature, and include post-traumatic stress disorder, blindness, traumatic brain injury and below- and above-the-knee amputations.
The climb, which involves about 30 veterans, is the result of collaboration between the national park service and paradox sports, based in boulder, colo.
The climb is part of a series of events for the veterans that began on monday and will continue through thursday.
