Blesma funded trip to Key Largo Florida

I still have 10 places left for a Blesma funded trip to Key Largo Florida for injured Veterans amputee & wheelchair user’s only on this trip from 21 June to 02 July all expenses paid including all traing & equipment travel, food & trips out (inc entry fees to anywhere we may go) . The applicant will need a PADI Scuba diving medical form signed by their GP. The short notice I cannot explain but I do know we were granted finances for 16 disabled Veterans and this will be the first of (if successful) an annual event.


I cannot gurantee a place I can put forward a recommendation. Also a very important point is person will need an ESTA so they can enter USA but I can send info if you find anyone who fits the criteria. Blesma members always take priority they are paying the bill so fair one. On Blesma membership any Veteran who has loss of use of limb or eye be it amputee or wheelchair user injuries while serving or now days after leaving HMF a lot of Veterans don’t know the new regulations … if you know of anyone who may qualify for blesma membership please let them know or call me or check out website Blesma Website
