Natacha Dupuis’ life took an unexpected turn when, on her second tour to Afghanistan, she witnessed the deaths of two of her brothers-in-arms. The result was an eventual diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder or PTSI (post-traumatic stress injury) as she likes to refer to it.

With more than 16 years of service, Master Corporal (retired) Dupuis was at a crossroads. Enter the Invictus Games.

After competing at Invictus Games Orlando 2016, Natacha is now Co-captain of Team Canada 2017, and she has a message for other ill and injured members headed to Invictus Games 2017. “You have been given this amazing opportunity to make changes in your life. Believe me, if you put in the effort, the Invictus movement and Soldier On will lift you right up. You will accomplish things you never thought possible.”
