2012 Marine Corps Trials Day 8

Chief Warrant Officer 2 Dennis Ramsy, member of the Allies team, tips backwards in his wheelchair in an attempt to get a rebound over a member of the West team in the 2012 Marine Corps Trials wheelchair basketball championship game at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 21. The Allies team was victorious over the East team, becoming the wheelchair basketball champions. More than 300 injured Marines from the Wounded Warrior Regiment, in addition to veterans and allies, competed in the second annual trials, which include swimming, wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, track and field, archery, cycling and shooting. The top 50 performing Marines will earn the opportunity to compete in the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., in May.
