Warrior Games Kick-off on Today Show!

Smith, a below-the-right-knee amputee and Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran recovering at Walter Reed in Washington, D.C., gets ready to throw an outlet pass down court during a wheelchair basketball practice April 13, 2010, at Walter Reed. Smith and others recovering at Walter Reed are training for the inaugural Warrior Games May 10-14 in Colorado Springs, Colo. The games will feature Paralympic-style competitions to challenge disabled veterans and wounded active duty servicemembers. (DoD photo by Army Sgt. 1st Class Michael J. Carden)

The Warrior Games are just days away!  These games will bring 200 wounded Troops and veterans together for Olympic-style feats of athleticism in Colorado Springs, beginning May 10 and running through May 14.

Before the games get started, though, members of Rolling Thunder are taking a cross-country tour, raising flags over Ground Zero, the Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa., and bringing those flags to the games as a way to honor all 9/11 victims.  Several athletes and a member of Rolling Thunder were featured on the Today Show this morning!
