Recently, a group of 30 veterans who are a part of the Wounded Warrior Project splashed around with dolphins as a new type of therapy. Featured Image Credit: Andy Newman via Florida Keys News Bureau. From missing limbs to PTSD, these brave warriors had an amazing opportunity to swim

The event capped off the “Soldier ride” cycling event from Key Largo to Key West. Jennifer Mackinday of Indiana said the experience was a chance to relax and have fun with her brother, U.S. Army Specialist James Smith. Smith suffered a traumatic injury during his deployment to Iraq in 2004 and 2005.

“The stronger that he gets, the less that he needs me,” she said, “but what we need from other is to be siblings again, not caregiver and patient. In fact, I was more reluctant than he was to get in the water and to be with dolphins. It just shows you how much I need my brother and how far we’ve come to be able to be just brother and sister again, and have a good time.”

The group shared flipper shakes, high fives, and dorsal fin tugs at the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon. The solider ride participants started their ride Friday along the Overseas Highway, ending in Key West.
