Two From Malmstrom Will Be Part of Wounded Warrior Team USA

Posted: Updated:
GREAT FALLS - Two veterans from Malmstrom Air Force Base will be going to England this summer to join wounded warriors' team USA in an Olympic style event. Retired Airman, Melissa Coduti is used to training for important missions and she will be going over seas, not to fight, but to compete.

"We have myself and one other military individual from Malmstrom Air Force Base qualify for Team USA for Wounded Warriors," says Coduti.

Coduti and one other Airman Staff Sergeant Chris D'Angelo, pictured here, will represent Great Falls and team USA to take on 14 other countries in the Wounded Warrior Invictus Games which will be hosted by prince harry in England this August.

"You know we didn't even know each other was going to be there and we were at our opening ceremonies and saw each other across and it's like Holy Cow and out of 100 plus Airmen, the take 20 from the Air Force. And 2 of them are made up from Malmstrom Air Force Base. One Retiree and one still Active duty," says Coduti.

Coduti says she trains 2 to 3 hours a day to keep her strength up, which she will need as she is participating in many events this year, despite an injury.

"I'm going to compete in a wide gambit of events. So I'm preparing for shooting, and then I have running and then I have a whole lot of strength training. A lot of strength training for me because of my injury so I have to stay strong more than anything. So it's either you get arteries, veins or nerves compressed in you thoracic cavity. And at one point or another I have had all 3 areas impacted," says Coduti.

 Coduti says she is very excited and proud to be competing for our country along side many other fellow military men and women.

"I'm so excited! I have never been, I'm nervous, I'm excited. Like you know we're team USA so it's made up of all the armed services. So I'm really excited to compete with the other branches of services as well," says Coduti.

You can actually track and cheer for team USA by following the Wounded Warrior's web site during the games come this August.
