Team USA

2016 was a stellar year for Team USA at Olympics and Paralympic games in Rio. Forty-seven of the athletes representing this great nation also represented (in no particular order) the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. These warrior athletes competed in a wide range of events from track and field to shooting, cycling, and sit-down volleyball. This year’s warrior athletes came from a variety of backgrounds and experiences all with the goal of representing their country, their branch, their craft, and themselves to the utmost of their ability.
