Some U.S. Paralympic athletes may have a chance to acclimate by training on U.S. military bases in Japan, Julie Dussiliere, USOPC chief of Paralympic sport, said.

Dussiliere said officials were working with the Department of Defense to try to provide "unique training opportunities" for up to five parasport NGBs to place athletes at bases.

She said such a move "clearly gives us a little bit of a home court advantage in terms of being on a U.S. base surrounded by other Americans with top-notch facilities and group support services."

I am an American and former Department of Defense Employee but I cannot get on the bases just to use the US Navy Federal Credit Union, but we are going to allow Olympiads to enter on and off and use the facilities?

Not fair.
