Hobbies help wounded vets

Hobbies help wounded vets

(NAPS)-Many American veterans are getting mental and physical therapy-and a lot of fun-from a surprising source.
That's because America's hobby industry is reaching out to organizations, such as the Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment, that care for recovering veterans by providing free model kits.
How It Works
Model hobby kits assist soldiers who are on the mend in re-focusing their energies on positive accomplishments and improving their fine-motor skills as part of their therapy.
Expert's Opinion
According to Patrick Mooney of the National Museum of the Marine Corps, which also works to find ways to improve wounded veterans' lives, "We are thrilled to have the continued kit contributions from the hobby industry, which support a number of hospitals, as well as the Wounded Warrior Regiment."
