The Marine Corps Wounded Warrior Regiment hosted the third annual Marine Corps Trials aboard Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., March 1- 6.  The Trials served as a preamble for the Regiment’s Warrior Athlete Reconditioning program to select 50 athletes to represent the Corps at the 2013 Warrior Games. 

The Warrior Games is a Paralympic-style competition for wounded, ill and injured service members.  The All-Marine Warrior Games Team will go head to head against the other branches of the Armed Forces May 11-17, at the Olympic Training Center and the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.  The All-Marine team will defend their first place title by competing in swimming, shooting, cycling, wheelchair basketball, archery, volleyball, and track and field.
