Marine veteran Cpl. Anthony McDaniel, from Pascagoula, Miss., rolls ahead of Marine veteran Cpl. Josue Barron, from Los Angeles, during wheelchair basketball practice at the 2013 Marine Corps Trials at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, Calif., Feb. 26, 2013. This is the second year both veterans are competing. McDaniel lost both his legs and his left hand to an improvised explosive device in Aug. 2010. Barron lost his left leg and left eye in an improvised explosive device blast Oct. 21, 2010. Marines from the Wounded Warrior Regiment, in addition to veterans and allies, are competing in the Trials, which include swimming, wheelchair basketball, sitting volleyball, track and field, archery, cycling and shooting. The top 50 performing Marines will earn the opportunity to compete in the Warrior Games in Colorado Springs, Colo., in May.
