HFOT VETERANS PROVE VICTORIOUS AT 2013 Warrior Games

When describing the injuries of many post-9/11 war veterans, a host of labels are often used: Severe. Debilitating. Devastating. Life-altering. Catastrophic. And as onlookers, it’s easy to assume that a life navigated by wheelchairs and prosthetics, is nothing short of challenging.

But if you asked any of the 200 wounded, ill, and injured service members, including six HFOT veterans participating at May’s 2013 Warrior Games, to elaborate on their hardships? They would likely have told you something along the lines of “…ain’t nobody got time for that.” Consuming these veterans’ thoughts instead were aspirations of victory in archery, cycling, shooting, sitting-volleyball, swimming, track and field, and wheelchair basketball. And the only descriptive labels for these champions on the mind of spectators watching them compete: inspiring and amazing. 

rebuilding_warrior3The Warrior Games were first played in 2010. They are designed to introduce injured service members and veterans to Paralympic sport competition and encourage them to stay physically active when they return to their local communities following the event. The branches of the military compete as “teams,” replicating the concept of countries competing in the Olympics.

The Marines took home the Chairman’s Cup for the fourth year in a row, and an impressive 93 medals overall: 34 gold, 33 silver and 26 bronze. The Army placed second with 81 medals. Congratulations to the following HFOT veteran athletes who, together with their respective teams, pushed through pain while getting it done at the Olympic Training Center and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs last May:

  • Chuck Armstead- Army: Cycling, Wheelchair Basketball, and Sitting Volleyball.
  • Justin Gaertner- Marines: Special Operations Command: Bronze Medal 10K Men’s Cycling, Bronze Medal Men’s 200M Wheelchair and Bronze Medal Men’s 1500M Wheelchair.
  • Travis Greene- Marines: Sitting Volleyball, Swimming and Track and Field
  • Anthony McDaniel- Marines: Gold Medal in both the 100M and 200M Wheelchair races in Track and Field. Silver Medal in the 1,500M, Wheelchair Basketball. (team won Silver)
  • Luis Puertas- Army: Swimming and Gold Medal in 100M, 200M and 1500M above -the-knee single-and-double-amputations events.
  • Joey Smith- Marines: Archery and Swimming, Gold Medal in Shooting (Standing).
