Adaptive sports and athletic reconditioning activities play a fundamental role in the recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration of our service members. The events of the 2015 Department of Defense Warrior Games embody the spirit of the members of the U.S. and British Armed Forces, and celebrate the triumphs, personal courage and inspirational attitude of our wounded, ill and injured service members.

Many of the Warrior games participants and their families will be staying in the Old Town Alexandria area. The 2015 Family Program organizers are pleased to share that the hotel for warrior games family members will be the Westin Alexandria located at 400 Courthouse Square.  Coincidentally, Alexandria was just voted the #1 city for veterans to live by the Military Times: OTP Article.

Best of Luck to the Warrior participants and their families!
