The Arms Forces, a non-profit organization in Maumee, presented Dancing with the Military Stars at Stranahan Great Hall Saturday, May 18, 2013.

The Arms Forces helps educate, empower, and facilitate change for military members and veterans who have a traumatic brain injury or post-traumatic stress called â??invisible wounds.â?? One healing process The Arms Forces provides is through Dancing with the Military Stars.

â??It is not easy for them to get through this nightâ?¦They go through this process of learning how to receive honor.â?? Pam Hayes, President and Founder of The Arms Forces, said. â??We just felt to have fun and to celebrate life, but to touch on a serious subject of these invisible wounds.â??

Among the celebrity dancers performing were Teresa Fedor, Air Force Veteran and State Representative, Bruce Gradkowski, NFL player and owner of Gradkowski's Restaurant, and Michael Bell, the Mayor of Toledo.
