Wounded veterans ride in Florida Keys, swim with dolphins



MARATHON, Fla. (AP) — Interacting with dolphins and cycling down segments of the Overseas Highway in the Florida Keys is providing therapy for 43 wounded military veterans of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Soldiers swam with the dolphins at Marathon’s Dolphin Research Center Friday, after traversing the highway in the Upper Keys using special adaptive bicycles. They shared dolphin kisses and got flipper shakes and dorsal fin pulls. Organized by the Wounded Warrior Project with help from the Keys community, the Florida Keys Soldier Ride aims to inspire wounded vets while raising funds for those still recovering in American military hospitals.
