This past weekend, a group of veterans set out into the ocean to heal themselves in the surf. The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation held two surf therapy sessions on Saturday and Sunday, September 17 and 18 at Coronado’s Shores Beach. The Jimmy Miller Memorial Foundation (JMMF) provides free surf therapy and ocean therapy for veterans, at-risk youth, special needs youth, and more. JMMF got its start 17 years ago with underprivileged and abused youth in Los Angeles, and the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Pendleton, which they still work with twice a month.

Unfortunately in 2004 a shoulder injury that kept him from surfing coincided with an onset of mental illness, and Jimmy took his own life. more >>
