National Disabled Veterans TEE Tournament

Army Veteran Homer Hudnall Jr. lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident. At first, he thought his life was over. But he discovered the therapeutic value of adaptive sports and he hasn’t looked back.

He credits the National Disabled WA TEE Tournament with saving his life. According to him, “Life throws you a curve sometimes and you just have to hit it out of the park as best you can.” Scroll down on the tournament home page to see his video.

The tournament is being held this week in Iowa City, Iowa:

The annual tournament provides legally blind and available disabled Veteran an opportunity to develop new skills and strengthen their self-esteem through adaptive golf and bowling events.

The four-day clinic consists of the TEE Golf Tournament, kayaking, horseback riding, and other adaptive sports workshops.

Each year, the TEE Tournament uses a therapeutic format to promote rehabilitation, fellowship and camaraderie among participants. The event provides eligible US Vets with an opportunity to participate in therapeutic adaptive sporting activities which demonstrate that having a visual or physical disability need not be an obstacle to an active, rewarding life.

Participation is open to U.S. military Vets with visual impairments, amputations, traumatic brain injuries, psychological trauma, certain neurological conditions, spinal cord injuries and other life changing disabilities.

Vets Affairs is committed to improving the quality of life for Vets with disabilities.

The Iowa City VA.Gov Health Care System, with support from more than 400 Vets Affairs and community volunteers, hosts the tournament. The event is sponsored by VA.Gov and Disabled American USA Veterans (DAV).
