Meet the Military Men and Women Representing Team USA in Tokyo

1st Lt. Sam Kendricks (pole vault) took bronze in the 2016 Olympics and made headlines for stopping mid-run during the playing of the U.S. national anthem.

Staff Sgt. John Stefanowicz (Greco-Roman wrestling, 87-kilogram) joined the Marines out of high school in 2009. The Olympics will mark a homecoming, of sorts — he told Stars and Stripes that he visited the capital during his service on Okinawa in the early 2010s.
