Gabe George heads to the 2022 DOD Warrior Games

JACKSONVILLE, Florida– “Physical activity is my therapy. Movement is my life,” says Gabriel George, also known as “The One-Armed Archer”.

It’s hard to find a moment when he sits still these days. Between scuba diving, pickleball and golf, Gabe is training for the upcoming DOD Warrior Games in Orlando, where injured veterans will compete in a variety of different adaptive sports.

“You come to this event like the Warrior Games and you find yourself in a blizzard full of other snowflakes. When you create a blizzard, together you are strong. You see people actually going through physically what you’re going through, someone really understands you,” Gabe explains.

Gabe joined the Navy in 2004 and was injured in a motorcycle accident in 2008. The accident left a spinal injury and damage to his right arm, which recently had to be amputated.

“They worked on me for 12 hours at a time, inflicted blood, sweat and tears and kept me alive,” he recalls that night. Despite his injuries, Gabe continues to see the positive in life and is active in a variety of organizations aimed at helping other wounded veterans heal. “I’ve found things that drive me. I find my gold medals before I even commit to anything.”

This is Gabe’s second and final time competing in the DOD Warrior Games. He previously competed in the 2022 Invictus Games and has his sights set on the 2024 Paralympic Games.

The DOD Warrior Games will be hosted at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney is the parent company of ABC Localish.
