Master Sgt. Christopher Aguilera will be one of the wounded warriors featured on Universal Sports Network’s documentary-style special ‘Warrior Games: The Fight Continues,’ airing 8 p.m. EDT, Oct. 22.

The two-hour original production tells the stories of five U.S. wounded service members veterans demonstrating the power of ability over disability in their personal recoveries, including their journeys at the 2014 Warrior Games that recently took place in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

Two hundred wounded, ill and injured service members and veterans representing the Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and U.S. Special Operations Command participated at the 2014 Warrior Games from Sept. 28 - Oct. 4, at the U.S. Olympic Training Center. The games were hosted by the U.S. Olympic Committee in partnership with the Defense Department, and are designed to introduce injured service members and veterans to Paralympic sport competition and encourage them to stay physically active when they return to their local communities following the event.

Each service branch will be represented in the show, including the following featured athletes:

- Army: Retired Sgt. 1st Class Charles Armstead, Killeen, Texas
- Marines: Staff Sgt. Maryann Miller, Clovis, California
- Navy: Retired Navy Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class Jacob "Doc" Emmott, Wakefield, Rhode Island
- Air Force: Master Sgt. Christopher Aguilera, Las Vegas
- U.S. Special Operations Command: Retired Sgt. 1st Class Howie Sanborn, Raleigh, North Carolina
