Military Veterans Learn How To Curl

ST. PAUL (WCCO) — Some military veterans got a chance to try a winter sport for the first time. As part of the St. Paul Winter Carnival, members of the St. Paul Curling Club showed some veterans with disabilities how to curl.

Some of them hope to compete in the Paralympics someday.

“Now I just need to work on being able to have some strength, and pushing it down there and trying to get to the house, I’m learning new terminology today,” said veteran Todd Kemery.      

“This is something that I never thought I would do, but this looks like it’s a lot of fun. I would like to do this again,” said veteran Edward Graham.

Courage Center helped make the curling event possible through a program called Operation Liberty. It offers many sports that people with disabilities can take part in for free.
