I am now an Olympic athlete in training! All be it no great athlete, but an Olympian just the same. Can you believe it? I can't that's for sure, but I'm really excited about participating in the Wounded Warrior Games for the Air Force Team. I will be running the 1500 meter race and shooting in all of the marksman events.
Please help spread the word about this event. It's the first year this is happening and they still need athletes from every branch of service. There's volleyball, running, cycling, swimming and more. For all of my buddies out there who served in Iraq with me, come on out and play a sport. It's going to be fun!

Wounded, ill, and injured service members will compete in the inaugural Warrior Games, May 10-14, 2010, through a joint effort between the U.S. Department of Defense and U.S. Olympic Committee. These inaugural games are part of an effort to inspire recovery, capitalize on physical fitness, and promote opportunities for growth and achievement among those wounded, ill, or injured.
The Warrior Games will provide a unique challenge for those who wish to learn more about adaptive sports and compete at a national level. An estimated 200 athletes will travel to the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to compete as the guests of the U.S. Olympic Committee’s (USOC) Paralympic Military Program. From the Army there will be 100 servicemembers, 50 from the Marine Corps, 25 from the Air Force, and 25 from the Navy/ Coast Guard.
All athletes and alternates selected will receive training assistance in preparation for the May games. Some of this support includes coaching clinics by US Paralympics coaches, training by the Army Marksmanship Unit, cycling training by Ride 2 Recovery, and adaptive sports equipment provided by the generosity of the United Services Organization, American Red Cross, and others.
Athletes competing in Warrior Games have sustained injury types including:
- Upper body injuries
- Lower body injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Post-traumatic stress
The events will be shooting, swimming, archery, sitting volleyball, cycling, track, wheelchair basketball, discus, and shot put. In addition to winners in each event, there will be an “Ultimate Warrior” competition in a pentathlon format, and service team scoring for a rotating Chairman’s Cup.
The Warrior Games provide a focal event to empower the incorporation of athletics into military wounded warrior programs, and provide an opportunity to introduce Paralympic sports to injured service members, while at the same time building camaraderie and raising awareness of Paralympic competition and adaptive sports in general.

Once on the battlefield…now on the playing field…with the same fighting spirit…
Be A Part Of It
For my second scenario, I moved the softbox to the camera right position. In the first shot there was no light on the back of Charlton's head. By moving the softbox camera right, the light added a separation between my subject and the background. I raised the camera-left light up to give his cheekbones some extra pop. Raising the light also allowed the light to flow equally over his face, hands and instrument.
Andy had to re-qualify on the M-9 pistol today. Here is his evidence. He just told me he scored expert... again. Look out now!
I applied the Diffused Glow filter in Adobe Photoshop to the M&M's picture. Doesn't it look like little amebas or even colorful small cells?
I applied both the Diffused Glow and Glowing Edges filters in Adobe Photoshop to Mike and Ike picture. Crazy looking.
