1 Photographs by Dennis Steele he inaugural Warrior Games, held in Colorado Springs, Colo., brought together approximately 200 competitors representing all services for a series of events at the U.S. Olympic Training Center and U.S. Air Force Academy. Hosted and administered by the U.S. Olympic Committee s U.S. Paralympics division, team and individual competitions included seated volleyball, wheelchair basketball, archery, cycling, swimming, air rifle and pistol shooting, and track and field events. The games were organized through the efforts of the Department of Defense, U.S. Paralympics and the United Service Organizations. Service teams were proportionally allocated slots for the games, and participants were drawn from the ranks of currently serving wounded, injured and ill warriors in the Army s case, particularly from soldiers in Warrior Transition Units and veterans. BG Gary H. Cheek, the Army s assistant surgeon general for warrior care and transition, said, The number one thing I asked [participants] to do was to take this flame, this Olympic torch, this spirit it has brought to them back to their comrades who are also recovering and moving forward and light that spark in them get their comrades back into life and into physical activity. That, he said, will have a great impact on veterans in treatment and recovery programs. 30 ARMY n July 2010
