Team Army kept the medal count tight Monday in day two of competition for the 2013 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs. The intra-military paralympic style air pistols and rifle shooting event tightened the Chairman's Cup points total for rival teams Marine Corps and Army. The true rivalry will unfold on the courts later in the games schedule when the two services face off at the Air Force Academy. Warrior Transition Command's Staff Sgt. Tracy Smith reports on the action courtside at the U.S. Olympic Center.
