?Few events unify the world like the Olympic Games, and it is only fitting that we make them accessible for those who chose to serve our country,? said retired Brigadier General Carol Eggert in a recent interview. ?We think it is extremely important to support our employees who are veterans or members of the National Guard and Reserve and the military community as a whole,? she added.
Meanwhile, with regards to Rio Olympics 2016 opening ceremonies, fans should expect some of Brazil?s finest performers to participate including singers like Gilberto Gil, Caetano Veloso, Luis Melodia, and Paulinho da Viola. Also, there are going to be lots of sexy and beautiful women during the event.
Talking on behalf of the ladies, actress/supermodel/producer Gisele Bundchen shared some details about the Samba performance of the women. ?There will be lots of nearly naked women doing the Samba?

Now, the Olympic flame is going to be lit by no other than Pele, the greatest footballer of all time. The flag bearer for Brazil, on the other hand, is going to be the Pentathlete Yane Marques, who outvoted sailor Robert Scheidt and volleyball player Sergio ?Serginho? Santos.
