    An example of NATO Russia cooperation at sea as the Italian Ship San Marco, the NATO flag ship to Operation Ocean Shield, maneuvers on the port (left) side of the Russian Federation ship Severromorsk during a joint counter piracy exercise that took place on 26 Feb in the Gulf of Aden.

    Wounded Warrior Trials 2013

    By Jonathan Horn March 2, 2013...CAMP PENDLETON CA — It’s still Camp Pendleton, but this week it seems more like a mini Olympic Village.

    That’s because wounded warriors from the U.S. Marine Corps and eight other countries have converged on the expansive base to compete in sports ranging from archery and wheelchair basketball to volleyball and swimming. The games run through Wednesday.

    For the Americans, it’s especially important, because 50 of the 250 Marines will be invited to the 2013 Warrior Games in May at the Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, where they’ll compete against the best wounded warriors from the other branches of the military. For now, they’re getting the chance to test their skills against wounded warriors from places like New Zealand, Great Britain and the Netherlands.

    On Saturday, 114 Marine archers spent the 80-degree sunny afternoon aiming for bull’s eyes on a field next to the base’s Lake O’Neill.


    Camp Pendelton CA..March 1st 2013..During the archery competition of the Wounded Warrior Trials 2013 at Camp Pendleton. Austrailian Army vet. Curtis McGrath, who lost both legs, competes. Watching and giving advice is archery instructor Darryl Wood, a retired Marine. — Charlie Neuman


    Active duty Marine Gaybriell Copper, of Portsmouth, Virginia, concentrates as she's about the release her arrow. At right is active duty Marine Clayton McDaniel, of Hawaii. — Charlie Neuman


    The line of competitors fire at their targets. — Charlie Neuman


    Detail view of the message on the back of the cap of ex-Marine Gregory Rodriguez, of Chicago, as he shoots an arrow at his target. — Charlie Neuman




    When you feel like *****in' about something wrong in your life..think about this man and what he is overcoming.
    Ex-Marine Oy Rassavong, of Akron, Ohio, uses his teeth to pull back the arrow in the bow. Among his many injuries suffered from an I.E.D. in Iraq in 2005 is a paralyzed right arm. Assisting at left are archery ... — Charlie Neuman


    Marine Colonel Willard Buhl, the Commanding Officer of the Wounded Warrior Regiment in Quantico, Virginia, shakes hands with ex-Marine Oy Rassavong, of Akron, Ohio during a break in the competition. He was severely injured by an I.E.D. in Iraq in ... — Charlie Neuman
