Warrior Games [Image 1 of 9]

Sergeant Justin Wess, 30, a native of Hubbard, Ohio, does warm up laps during the last swim practice for the Marine team, September 23, in preparation for the 2014 Warrior Games. The Marine team has been training since September 15 in order to build team cohesion and acclimate to the above 6,000 ft. altitude of Colorado Springs. The Marine team is comprised of both active duty and veteran wounded, ill and injured Marines who are attached to or supported by the Wounded Warrior Regiment, the official unit of the Marine Corps charged with providing comprehensive non-medical recovery care to wounded, ill and injured Marines. The Warrior Games are a Paralympic-style competition for more than 200 wounded, ill and injured service members and are taking place September 28 to October 4 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
