Barry Kitterman (above right) of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship accepted a certificate of appreciation from Nancy McPherson, founder of Underwater Warriors, for a contribution in support of the rehabilitation work this non-profit center offers soldiers recovering from injuries sustained in the Iraq and Afghanistan war.
Underwater Warriors is a charitable and educational non-profit created to provide scuba diving as therapeutic recreation for injured servicemen and women. Armed with adaptive skills, injured soldiers are now defying gravity, liberating bodies confined to wheelchairs, and finding freedom once again in an underwater world.
McPherson, who has worked tirelessly to establish this program, attended the Unitarian service Sunday morning to personally thank the congregation for their support. Underwater warriors is a scuba diving program that allows wounded soldiers and their family members (over age 10) to participate in a unique form of water therapy and exercise.
For more information on the Underwater Warrior program, contact McPherson at Underwater Warriors, P.O. Box 2117, Fort Campbell, KY 42223.
