Cpl. Ben McCrosky, a native of Havelock, North Carolina, prepares to shoot during wheelchair basketball practice for the Marine team, Sept. 20, in preparation for the 2014 Warrior Games. The Marine team has been training since Sept. 15 in order to build team cohesion and acclimate to the above 6,000 feet altitude of Colorado Springs. The Marine team is comprised of active duty and veteran wounded, ill and injured Marines who are attached to or supported by the Wounded Warrior Regiment, the official unit of the Marine Corps charged with providing comprehensive non-medical recovery care to wounded, ill and injured Marines. The Warrior Games are a Paralympic-style competition for more than 200 wounded, ill and injured servicemembers and are taking place Sept. 28 to Oct. 5 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
