President George W. Bush

I have dedicated the rest of my life to honoring the service and sacrifice of the men and women with whom I served as Commander-in-Chief. Those who wear their Nation’s uniform, some of whom have overcome both visible and invisible injuries, deserve our support.

Memorable stories from Orlando 2016

I AM Elizabeth Marks

A first for the Games was when U.S. competitor Elizabeth Marks returned one of her four gold medals to Prince Harry, asking him to pass the medal on to the British hospital that saved her life on the eve of the inaugural Invictus Games in London.

I AM Susan Warner

Out of all the United Kingdom competitors at this year’s Invictus Games, Susan Warner’s journey instantly shined through. Susan is one of the UK’s older competitors, and when she won bronze in swimming, it’s hard to fathom someone looking more proud. She has overcome so much and she has still come out to Orlando to compete.

I AM Team Germany

The journeys of two of the German competitors at the Invictus Games Orlando 2016: Master Sgt Naef Adebahr and Master Sgt Kai Cziesla. The German duo are caregivers and staff members of the Federal Sports School and run a sports therapy group in their homeland, aiding wounded, ill and injured soldiers.
