The Warrior Games exist to provide an opportunity for athletes to grow physically, mentally and spiritually from the sportsmanship and camaraderie gained by representing their respective service teams in a friendly and spirited competition. It is an opportunity for athletes to showcase their enduring warrior spirit in the presence of their families and a grateful nation.
The 2017 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games will be held June 30 – July 8 in Chicago, Ill. Approximately 250 seriously wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans will participate in the competition. The wounded warrior athletes will represent the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Coast Guard, Air Force and Special Operations Command.
