The U.S. Army Warrior Transition Command announced last week the 40 wounded, ill and injured soldiers and veterans and five alternates who will represent Team Army at the 2016 Department of Defense Warrior Games later this year.

Three soldiers from Fort Hood — Sgt. 1st Class Allan Armstrong, Capt. Justin Decker and 1st Lt. Christopher Parks — were selected to represent Team Army. Two Fort Hood area veterans were also selected: former Staff Sgt. Erick Acevado, of Kempner; and former Sgt. Robbie Gaupp, of Gatesville.
