The one sport Kevin Coleman played when he was in high school in the late 1970s in Washington, D.C., was basketball. He returned to Washington last month to catch a flight for a basketball tournament in Omaha, Neb. This time, he played in a wheelchair.
Coleman was one of hundreds of veterans participating July 25-29 in the National Veterans Wheelchair Games. The games are the largest annual wheelchair sports event in the world, and they were presented by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and Paralyzed Veterans of America.
