Some of the athletes are soldiers you’ve heard a lot about — injured by a roadside bomb or another combat-related injury. Others are accident victims or suffering from an illness.

Sitting volleyball was a great success at the games and I wanted to share some pictures that were passed along to me. A way to honor these great men and women.
