Retired Tech. Sgt. Corey Carter narrowly lost to the Army's Jessie White in the Warrior Games archery competition at Clune Arena here May 15.

White scored 27 to defeat Carter, ending the bronze compound match, 107-106.

"I had the lead, and I should have kept it," said Carter, who also competed in the 2012 Warrior Games. "I started to shake more than I wanted to."

The Air Force earned a silver medal in the team compound open, falling to the Marine team by one point, 158-157, and earned bronze in the team recurve event.

Despite missing the bronze medal, Carter said he's enjoyed this year's Games.

"It's a great time. I'm having fun, meeting new guys (and) our British counterparts," he said.

As of May 15, the Air Force is fourth in the medal count, collectively logging two gold medals, seven silver medals and six bronze medals during this year's Games.
