Academy hosts Warrior Games sports camp

  • Published
Air Force wounded warriors are participating in a sports camp here through Feb. 2 in their quest to represent the Air Force in the 2013 Warrior Games.

Fifty-four candidates are participating in the sports camp, which includes events such as track and field, basketball, volleyball, swimming, marksmanship and recumbent biking.

Since 2010, nearly 200 wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans have competed at the annual Warrior Games, a partnership between the Department of Defense and U.S. Olympic Committee Paralympic Military Program.

The Warrior Games are a means for various service members to use sportsmanship to build camaraderie within the military community and celebrate their recoveries.
