Ben Duran from Colorado Springs also is an active Wounded Warrior Games veteran, participating in sitting volleyball, shooting and cycling. Abbeville, Alabama veteran Anthony Radetic has competed in three Wounded Warrior Games, and is active in skiing, scuba diving, archery, swimming, and wheelchair basketball.
