There are a couple of things Jason Brooks missed when he retired from the U.S. Marine Corps. He’s been able to get one of them back as a team member on the Capital Beltway Warriors.
“You go into the locker room and it’s almost like you’re going back in time,” said Brooks. That locker room is filled with wounded veterans, coming together every once in a while to go head to head against other ice hockey teams of veterans.
According to David Dixon, president and executive director of the Capital Beltway Warriors, there were only five teams in 2017 — now, there are over 12.
After returning home from the military, Brooks opened his motorcycle shop, Brooks Cycles LLC, in Chantilly. He made a big donation to his team.
“He’s the kind of guy that’s gonna open up when he’s closed to help get you back on the road,” said Dixon.
