An event that started 24 years ago with 34 visually-disabled veterans has grown to more than 250 veterans, all who deal with various life-changing disabilities.

The 24th annual National Disabled Veterans TEE Tournament kicked off Monday night with opening ceremonies, where they welcomed 264 disabled veterans to the four-day event. Veterans came in from all over the country for the event. It’s hosted by the Iowa City VA Medical Medical Center, with the help of the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and the Disabled American Veterans organization.

“Keeping Veterans engaged so they don’t recluse themselves from society, and anything we can do to open a door with an event like this, is a positive for everyone,”Kirt Sickels, National Disable Veterans TEE Tournament Director, said.
