200 Wounded Warriors from all services are preparing to compete against each other during the 2011 Warrior Games. Held last year at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, that venue will once again host this year’s games. Medal of Honor recipient Staff Sgt. Salvatore Giunta will light the torch to kick off the events, meanwhile the athletes will spend five days training. This Pentagon Channel Report takes a brief look into those preparations.
