For months, about 100 Air Force wounded, ill and injured servicemembers and veterans have been preparing for the Air Force Trials Feb. 24 to March 2 at Nellis Air Force Base, Nevada. The Air Force Trials is an adaptive and rehabilitative sports event designed to promote the mental and physical well-being of participants. The trials’ events include wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, swimming, track and field, air pistol and rifle shooting, rowing, archery and cycling. The Air Force athletes will be vying for a spot on the Air Force team that will compete at the 2017 Department of Defense Warrior Games in Chicago in June.
