Falcons to host veterans from ‘Walking with the Wounded’ at training camp

The Atlanta Falcons will host a group of veterans during Wednesday’s training camp.

The veterans— part of the foundation “Walking with the Wounded”— will watch practice and then meet Falcons players and coaches at the conclusion of practice as part of their three-stop NFL training camp tour.

“Walking with the Wounded” is comprised of three American and three British veterans who have been walking over 1,000 miles across the United States to raise awareness of vulnerable veterans who are working to become independent and re-integrate into society.

The veterans already visited the training camp of the Kansas City Chiefs and will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars after Wednesday’s visit to Flowery Branch.
