BRECKENRIDGE, Colo. (AP) - Nine soldiers injured in Iraq will be among 600 people attending the 16th annual Ski Spectacular of Disabled Sports USA this week.

The soldiers, some of whom lost limbs or were paralyzed, will learn to ski or snowboard on special equipment.

Some of them, including Capt. David Rozelle, 31, were skiers or snowboarders before they were wounded. Rozelle lost his right foot when a land mine exploded under his Humvee.

Washington, D.C.-based Disabled Sports USA was founded in 1967 by disabled Vietnam veterans.
