Warrior games? Yes, warrior games but these games are not the online variety. These warrior games are a competition, sponsored by the U.S. Olympic Committee for wounded, ill and injured military members and veterans. The First Lady will speak at the opening ceremony taking place in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Retired Army 1st Lt. Melissa Stockwell, the first American female soldier wounded in combat in Iraq, and Captain Simon Maxwell of the British Royal Marines are the honorary torchbearers for the event.
