Men’s Health — Strength comes in many forms, and they’re all on display at the Warrior Games, an annual event organized by the U.S. Department of Defense for injured service members and veterans. About 250 men and women battle it out in wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, swimming, and track and field—for starters. The competition is fiery, the camaraderie intense. It’s about more than winning or never quitting, although the competitors show those qualities. “Combat vets don’t like to get mushy, so we call it brotherhood,” says retired Army Sgt. David Iuli. “But it’s all love.”
