With the whole world watching the Olympic games in London, this is a perfect opportunity to recognize some amazing military athletes who not only serve in the Armed Forces, but are now competing to be the best in the world at the Olympics.

It may surprise some people, but there are actually many military veterans and currently serving troops who are on Team U.S.A. competing in every event from shooting sports to wrestling and others. Naturally, the our troops play a big role in Team USA's marksmanship team in the shooting events.

These are some of our Military Olympians who are simultaneously serving in the US Army Marksmanship Unit and also on Team USA. Keep reading every day from now through the end of the Olympics as we bring you the stories of our Military Olympians and their impressive achievements both on and off the battlefield!

We're celebrating military athletes who serve their country on the battlefield and as part of TEAM USA at the Olympic games.

While these Military Olympians deserve our praise and all the media coverage the Olympics brings, we can't forget about the military heroes serving overseas.

Their feats on the battlefield often go unrecognized and are not covered by the media, but they are just as deserving of our praise and recognition as our Olympians. We have over 90,000 troops still serving in Afghanistan and they need our support! SPONSOR A CARE PACKAGE NOW!

This is still about the troops who are on the front lines fighting the Taliban and Al Qaeda. They are in harm's way and they're the troops we're sending care packages to!
