More than 1,500 members of the Warrior Transition Brigade, their caregivers at Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center visited Camp Triumph in Copperas Cove on Friday.

The family day outing was the sixth and final event of this fiscal year hosted by the Red Cross and funded through a partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project.

It was also the largest, said Mary Basiliere, station manager for the Fort Hood Red Cross.

Families and soldiers enjoyed games, a splash pad, face painting, a caricature artist, adaptive sports and food. A commander’s cup contest encouraged competition among the

sports offered, including wheelchair basketball, ladder golf and football.
