Dozens of veterans were able to catch a few waves at Bolsa Chica State Beach during a surfing camp presented by nonprofit Team Red, White and Blue. Volunteers with the group helped 25 injured veterans ride their boards July 19, said Chris Merkle, director of the Orange County chapter.

Team Red, White and Blue is a national organization that helps veterans connect with their communities through physical and social activities, Merkle said.

The next surfing camp will be held Sept. 27 in Huntington Beach.
