The New Jersey Warriors is a program for disabled servicemen and servicewomen to connect with one another, challenge themselves and each other, and remind them that there’s still nothing they can’t do. Affiliated with the New Jersey Devils, the hockey program was created to give disabled U.S Military Veterans an opportunity to rehab through the world of Ice Hockey.
Veterans from New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania have the opportunity to join the team as a way to connect, bond, and use this experience as a therapeutic way to physically rehab and manage stresses from their military experiences
What led to the New Jersey Warriors program being formed and how is it helping veterans transition from being active service members to civilian life? Sports Illustrated host Kaitlin O'Toole is joined by New Jersey Warriors President, Mark Puttenvink and U.S Marine, Shane Paulan for insight.
