2013 Warrior Games— published: 04-05-2013
If you’re nostalgic for the excitement of the last summer Olympics, fret not—it’s almost time for the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs! Athletes and teams from each branch of service have already qualified in their respective trials and are set to compete the week of May 11-16 at the U.S Olympic Training Center in Colorado. The Warrior Games give wounded service members and veterans an opportunity to compete in adaptive sports. For some, this is a continuation of their competitive careers; for others, it’s a new experience and part of the healing process. Volunteers are needed to assist with various tasks such as officiating, scorekeeping, medal ceremonies, and more. If you’d like to be a part of this special event, apply as soon as possible. Or if you’re in the neighborhood, stop by to cheer on the athletes—admission is free! Semper Citius, Altius, Fortius!
