2011 Warrior Games – Competition with other Military Service Members gives an injured Marine his life back!

June 1st, 2011

Warrior Games - 2011

On Armed Forces Day and after a week of intense competition, the Marine Corps was deemed the top overall performing branch and claimed the 2011 Chairman’s Cup for the second year in a row!

Congratulations to all the competitors; every participant took something home this week, but as for Joshua Wege of the Marines, he got his life back.

Wege reflected on the week saying, “It was great to get back into team sports. I was active in sports before I was injured and this opportunity has been so important to my family and me.  I knew if I could accomplish this I was going to be okay.”   Teammate Disbro echoed his positive remarks saying, “Everyone leaves here with confidence and goals, that’s what this week is really about.”

Sgt Lee Randles
