The 2019 Army Trials at Fort Bliss is an adaptive sports competition from March 5-16 with over 100 wounded, ill and injured active-duty Soldiers and veterans competing in 14 different sports for the opportunity to represent Team Army at the 2019 Department of Defense Warrior Games in Tampa, Florida.

But the road to the Army Trials hasn’t been easy for Gordon, who credits the friendships she’s made at the WTB with helping her recovery.
“I had to learn to write with my right hand, it really brought me down, but I don’t want to let down my friends by not being (at adaptive sports events). If it’s a bad day, I’m still going to go just to support them,” said Gordon. “I’ve been meeting so many cool people, it’s really encouraging and fun to cheer people on. I’d like to learn more from the (Army Trials) coaches and get help honing my skills, make different friendships, build camaraderie, and enjoy the different experience.”
