Executive Summary

The American Veterans Domestic Service Project: Inclusive Fitness and Sports was designed to strengthen communities through two actions: 1) provide education and training for veterans with disabilities in the career field of fitness for people with disabilities; and 2) utilize veterans' personality, character, knowledge, skills, and unique understanding of the challenge of disability to lead inclusion for people with disabilities in physical activity. Key outcomes of the project are increasing volunteerism and replicating and extending this model throughout the nation.
