Georgia at the Invictus Games
The Georgian Armed Forces were established in 1991 after their independence was declared and consists of approximately 37,000 active personnel.. They have been participating in international peacekeeping missions ever since, joining the US-led coalition forces in Iraq and the International Security Assistance Force operation in Afghanistan. They have been a part of the Invictus community since the inaugural Games of London 2014 and continue to play an active role in the Invictus community.
Participating in the Invictus Games means a lot because it makes all the stress and pain that I suffered go away.
