“The mohawk haircut was new. Dawn Page, an Army sergeant first class assigned to Special Operations Forces, got it just before coming to the Warrior Games”, writes Pat Borzi, Contributor with espnW.   “As the lanky Page carried her starting blocks across the infield Sunday at Lane Technical College Prep High School, ready to run the women’s 100-meter dash at the Warrior Games, she broke her steely concentration briefly to nod at her wife in the stands. “She looks so cool,” said Dana Childress-Page, leaning over the railing above the track at the competitors below. “I love her so much.”

Though not particularly religious, Page had been baptized the week before in the Jordan River, where Christian tradition teaches that John the Baptist baptized Jesus. Now she was alone, badly hurt, disoriented.
