He’s served seven tours of duty with the army and now Sergeant Thomas Smith of Beaverton is making his hometown even more proud.

Sgt. Smith is at Fort Bliss in Texas competing in the Warrior Games, a sports competition for injured service members and veterans.

The games highlight the importance of reconditioning and the recovery of wounded and ill service members and involves not just sports but also healing arts, mind and spiritual activities.
