2016 Department of Defense Warrior Games presented by Deloitte
Champions know no limits
The 2016 Department of Defense (DoD) Warrior Games, presented by Deloitte, represent the culmination of participation in structured adaptive sports and reconditioning activities of wounded, ill, and injured service members. The Warrior Games encourages participation in physical and cognitive activities; inspires physical fitness, mental strength, and peer support; and facilitates new opportunities for growth and achievement.
About the games
Deloitte is proud to support the 2016 DoD Warrior Games as a presenting sponsor. This year’s Warrior Games will take place June 15-21 at the US Military Academy at West Point, NY, and will feature eight sporting events with approximately 250 athletes representing teams from the Army, Marine Corps, Navy/Coast Guard, Air Force, and US Special Operations Command, as well as the UK Armed Forces. Deloitte supports the mission of the DoD Warrior Games and believes that adaptive sports and athletic reconditioning activities play a fundamental role in the recovery, rehabilitation, and reintegration of our service members and veterans.

Deloitte is proud to cheer for two of our own competing in the 2016 Department of Defense Warrior Games.
Will Reynolds, a US Army veteran and a manager in Deloitte Consulting’s Federal Health practice, has been an adaptive sports participant since 2005 and was the first Deloitte professional to participate in the Warrior Games. In addition to competing in track, he will be piloting a tandem and is also currently in the Paralympic development pool for cycling. Will was wounded in 2004 during combat in Iraq and went through two years of treatment and 26 surgeries.

Sean Walsh, a US Army veteran and a member of Team SOCOM, is a senior consultant for Deloitte Consulting in its Federal Government Services practice. This is Sean’s second time participating—he competes in cycling and swimming. A multisport athlete, Sean was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes after returning from a mission overseas while serving with US Special Operations Command.

More than a sponsorship: How Deloitte is giving back to our warriors
Deloitte is committed to supporting military members, veterans, and their families, with a particular focus on the employment and physical health and recovery of armed forces members who are transitioning from active duty to civilian life. As part of this commitment, we collaborate with veteran-serving nonprofits; work with nonprofits through our Pro Bono Program to address their business challenges; and work with veterans directly through both Deloitte volunteerism efforts and Deloitte’s Career Opportunity Redefinition & Exploration (CORE) Leadership Program. We also have continued to support the federal government’s Transition Goals, Plans Success (GPS) program.
In addition, Deloitte aims to be a top destination for veterans to thrive in a professional services career. We recognize that the backgrounds and experiences of our people are as diverse as our business offerings, and we rely on the rich, varied experiences of our people to help shape the quality of service to our clients.
As part of Deloitte’s commitment to the White House’s Joining Forces initiative, Deloitte pledged to double its veteran hiring numbers over the course of three years. We met this goal a year ahead of schedule but are not stopping there–we continue to focus on increasing our hiring efforts and on enhancing the Deloitte experience for veterans. Transitioning armed forces members and veterans bring invaluable skills, knowledge, experience, and insights that further enrich the diversity of our teams.
