At the British Embassy, the British Ambassador to the United States, Sir Peter Westmacott, hosted 20 of America’s wounded, ill, and injured service members and veterans who will shortly participate in the Invictus Games, to be hosted in the UK later this year. The reception, attended by athletes and those who are an integral part of supporting the athletes on their road to these international games, was an expression of the camaraderie both nations share on and off the battle field.

In just three months’ time, London will welcome personnel, both active duty and veteran service members, from 13 countries whose troops have fought together recently. The reception was an opportunity to celebrate their achievements, recognize the power of sport as a tool for rehabilitating the wounded, and look forward to the games.
