These recovering service members embody the professionalism and warrior ethos necessary to aide themselves and their fellow Marines in their journeys to recovery.

“Being selected for Team Marine Corps is a tremendous achievement and testament to the efforts of each Marine and their families, caretakers, and support network,” said Col. Bret Hyla, Commanding Officer of the Wounded Warrior Regiment. “The Warrior Games is only one portion of the journey to recovery that we all witness. Every single day, these Marines have been driving forward toward recovery. I am extremely proud of their dedication to healing and thriving, despite the unique obstacles they all face. Congratulations, Marines!”

Established in 2007, the Wounded Warrior Regiment provides leadership and ensures compliance with laws and DoD instructions related to the support, recovery, and non-medical care of combat and non-combat wounded, ill, and injured Marines, Sailors attached to Marine units, and their family members in order to maximize their recovery as they return to duty or transition to civilian life. The regimental headquarters, located in Quantico, Virginia, oversees the operations of two Wounded Warrior battalions located at Camp Pendleton, California, and Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, as well as multiple detachments in locations around the globe.
