It’s one thing to hit the bullseye… but it’s another thing entirely to hit it after passing through an incredibly small target — the mouth of a water bottle! During last week’s DoD Warrior Games training camp at Naval Base Ventura County, Team Navy’s archery athletes looked better than ever — and they had a great time together! They are looking forward to displaying their skills at the Games later this month. Go #TeamNavy!
