2019 Warrior Games
The Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games were created in 2010 and designed to introduce wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans to Paralympic-style sports. The Warrior Games showcase the resilient spirit of today’s wounded, ill or injured service members from all branches of the military. After overcoming significant injuries and illnesses, these athletes prove that life can continue after becoming wounded, ill and injured. The U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) will host the 2019 Department of Defense (D0D) Warrior Games June 21-30 in Tampa, Fla.
Approximately 300 wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans will participate in the competition. The athletes will represent the United States Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Special Operations Command. Athletes from the U.K. Armed Forces, Australian Defence Force, Canadian Armed Forces, Armed Forces of the Netherlands, and the Danish Armed Forces will also compete. The athletes symbolize to all wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans across the nation, and others facing adversity, that individuals can recover from a serious injury or illness and lead fulfilling, productive and inspiring lives.
