WIESBADEN, Germany (July 19, 2012) - Soldiers from 5th Signal Command and U.S. Army Garrison Wiesbaden hosted an event at Clay Kaserne Gym July 6 in support of Wounded Warriors from Wiesbaden, Kaiserslautern, Baumholder, and Heidelberg Warrior Transition Units.

During the event warriors participated in adaptive sports such as wheelchair basketball and seated volleyball. After all the energy was spent from the competitive sports Soldiers came together and enjoyed a barbeque.

"The event built a partnership with the Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe," said Sgt. 1st Class James W. Bonner, 5th Signal Command Equal Opportunity Advisor. "I think one of the biggest benefits of hosting this multi-community event was bringing an entire region of Warrior Transition Unit Warriors together to showcase their skills in adaptive sports and give the community the opportunity to support, interact, and participate with their Warriors," he said.

Many members of our community provided support to host this event for the Wounded Warriors.

"I would first like to thank the Warrior Transition Battalion-Europe (WTB) Warriors for a great experience! Mr. Paddock, Ms. Hall, and Sgt. 1st Class Morales...without them this event would not have been possible," said Bonner.
