Pineland hosts veterans’ biathlon event


— 40 DEGREES PROBABLY BEFORE THANKSGIVING. STEVE: THANK YOU. NEW AT 6:00 — A GROUP OF VETERANS DEALING WITH LIFE CHALLENGES GOT OUT ON THE SNOW TODAY TO LEARN HOW TO SKI AND SHOOT. TODAY, MARKED THE BEGINNING OF THE 2ND ANNUAL VETERAN’S BIATHLON CAMP AT PINELAND FARMS. SOME WERE CLIPPING ON CROSS COUNTRY SKIS FOR THE FIRST TIME. ORGANIZERS SAY EXPERIENCES LIKE THIS ARE A BIG BOOST FOR VETS WHO ARE HAVING A HARD TIME MAKING THE TRANSITION INTO CIVILIAN LIFE. TO TRY SOMETHING COMPLETELY NEW GIVES THEM A SENSE OF CONFIDENCE AND BUILDS THEIR SELF-ESTEEM AND THAT HELPS GOING FORWARD AND PUTTING THEIR PAST BEHIND HIM.
