Heartbreaking to see young men wounded so severely while serving our country.

Angel Barcenas and William Gibson of the Marines wish each other good luck prior to their 1,500 Meter run during the 2010 Warrior Games for wounded soldiers on Friday 05/14/10 at U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colo.

This was the first year that the games were held, but as the article above says, they are already planning on holding it again next year.

I’m glad to see these guys aren’t letting their injuries ruin their competitive spirit, camaraderie,  and zest for life.

Pretty interesting to see in some of the pictures, how far prosthetic limb technology has come.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado. – Police officers are investigating a bizarre crime spree that started after a man reportedly got mad over a Wii game.Witnesses told police a man went after several people in the Meadows Mobile Home Park with a bat, bit his mother on the ankle, intentionally rammed several cars, and hit a pedestrian and a tree.

When the victims followed the driver, after a short distance he stopped, got out of his car and allegedly used a BB gun to break out the rear window of a vehicle, according to the police report.

That guy is just straight NUTS.  From the picture in the linked article, looks like the police might have drove his face into the ground. No doubt he was probably fighting them even after he got tasered.

I wonder if he shot at the vehicle to break the window, or he he used the BB gun itself to smash the window? I haven’t shot my BB gun in a long time, but I don’t remember it being that powerful.  I suppose BB gun technology possibly has come a long way.
