VFW Member Golden At Games for Vets

WEST HAVEN, Nov. 27, 2018 — Randy Acklin, a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9422, shows off the two gold and silver medals he won at the 32nd annual National Veterans Golden Age Games Aug. 3-8 in Albuquerque, N.M.

Acklin won the gold in the men’s 200- and 800-meter runs and the silver in the men’s 400-meter run and 1,000-meter power walk.

The Golden Age Games, open to veterans 55 and older who receive health care from the Department of Veterans Affairs, are the premier senior adaptive rehabilitation program in the U.S. They are the only national multievent sports and recreational competition program designed to improve the quality of life for older veterans, including those with a wide range of abilities and disabilities.

The VA challenges and encourages senior veterans to embrace a healthier lifestyle, thereby achieving the NVGAG “Fitness for Life” motto.

The 2019 games are June 5-10 in Anchorage, Alaska. Registration is Feb. 25-March 8.
