Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge battles Minn. conditions

A group of veterans recently spent a few days in northern Minnesota skiing and braving the freezing cold as part of an effort called the Combat Wounded Veteran Challenge.

The organization pairs injured veterans with high-level excursions and outdoor challenges. It's also part science, as the trip up north involved research on the effect of the cold on prosthetic limbs.

On The Daily Circuit, we hear more about the experience from a co-founder and participant in the challenge.
