DoD Warrior Games Opens With 265 Participants, Celebrities

“Hello, Chicago. Michelle and I are thrilled that the DoD Warrior Games are taking place in Chicago,” Obama said via a taped message. “As a society, we use the word heroes when we talk about sports, but there are true heroes here today; men and women who served their country with honor and selflessness, men and women who risked their lives so that others might live. The wounded warriors competing in these games didn’t get to choose the direction their lives would take in the instant they were injured. But every day, they choose to prove that life after injury isn’t about what you can’t do. It’s about what you can. To all who serve and have served, it’s the honor of my lifetime to have served as your commander in chief. Michelle and I are so very proud of all of you. Good luck and enjoy the games.”
