James Temme, associate director of radiation science technology education, was among approximately 900 Veterans who were in Omaha to participate in the Golden Age Veterans Games this weekend. Mr. Temme was honored to carry the Nebraska flag during the opening ceremony.
“I placed fourth out of 50 in table tennis,” said Jim. “That was an accomplishment, but it was just great getting to meet so many fellow Vets from all over the country.”
About the games from their website:
The National Veterans Golden Age Games is the premier senior adaptive rehabilitation program in the United States, and the only national multi-event sports and recreational seniors’ competition program designed to improve the quality of life for all older Veterans, including those with a wide range of abilities and disabilities. The VA challenges and encourages senior Veterans to be proactive in embracing a healthier lifestyle.
The games are open to Veterans, ages 55 or older, who receive health care from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
