NEWRY, Maine — Twenty-five disabled military personnel, most of them injured in combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, are in Maine to do some skiing at Sunday River.

Veterans No Boundaries is a program of Maine Handicapped Skiing that provides recreational activities for veterans and active duty personnel with physical disabilities. The event, from Friday to Sunday, is held twice a year to help veterans either return to a sport or try a new sport after becoming disabled.

In addition to downhill skiing, the organization is a biathlon demonstration. Biathlon combines cross-country skiing and rifle marksmanship.
