Ocean Therapy for Veterans

Veterans of the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration include Veterans from Vietnam, Desert Storm and current conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. This diverse group attends monthly Ocean Therapy sessions with the Jimmy Miller Foundation.

The sessions include 1:1 surfing instruction, occupational therapist led discussion sessions and therapeutic support both in the form of sport adaptation, as well as open and supported communication both in and out of the water. The JMF embraces the opportunity to provide these men and women with an opportunity to engage in the healing effects of the ocean, while celebrating their contributions to our country and their service for our security.

Sessions last from 9:30am till 1:30pm at Rosecrans in Manhattan Beach. We encourage anyone with a love of the water to volunteer, including surf instructors, therapists, supporters, and friends. Please see the Ocean Therapy section for further details and Ocean Therapy dates.
