Wounded Soldiers Compete

Hundreds of soldiers serving in Iraq get to come home alive, but not all of them come back the way they left.

Many end up losing their arms or legs, but this week in Colorado Springs, our heroes refused to allow their disabilities to stop them from living their lives.

Wounded soldiers are training at The Olympic Training Center, where paralympic athletes are teaching soldiers how to swim, play volleyball and run track and field.

Many of the soldiers say it was a tough decision to come out and try, but 35 wounded soldiers showed up and gave it their best.

Soldiers will be competing all this week.
