More than 1 hundred wounded soldiers from Canada and the United States are being honoured in Nipawin this weekend.
They landed in Saskatoon today (Thurs), to take part in the first ever Wounded Warrior weekend.
Golfing, fishing, and quading are on schedule, with a country music concert to conclude everything on Sunday night.
Co-Director, Jim Schute, says they organized it to bring to light the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder in soldiers.
He says many soldier carry wounds, not only physical but mental.
A calvacade will bring them all back to Saskatoon on Monday, where they will fly back home.
Schute says he has been waiting for this day since last fall, when him and country music star Blake Emmons decided to bring the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder to the forefront.
