Army Trials local

Besides cycling, Capt. Justin Decker, assigned to Fort Hood’s Warrior Transition Unit, competed in sitting discus and shot put, wheelchair track, seated volleyball, air rifles and air pistols during the 2016 Army trials held at Fort Bliss last week.

Ten months ago, Capt. Justin Decker did something he never thought his injuries would allow: he got back on his bike, a two-wheeled recumbent that for the past five years had been collecting dust.

It was a move, the Fort Hood Warrior Transition Unit soldier said, that would change his life because it not only recharged him mentally and physically, but it also championed his competitive spirt.
