(STEVENS POINT, Wis.) - Two-time Paralympian Patrick McDonald
(Madison, Wis.) will visit the Barksdale Air Force Base in Louisiana next week as part of the American 300 Heavy Medal Tour VIII.
A U.S. Army Veteran, McDonald, 46, will be joined by three-time Olympian Emily Cook (aerial skiing) for a visit to the base on Tuesday and Wednesday. While in Louisiana, McDonald will have an opportunity to engage with service men and women - learning their stories while telling his own from the recent Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia.
"I just want to say it is a great chance to hang with the greatest military on the planet," said McDonald, who has represented the U.S. at two Paralympic Games and three world wheelchair championships. "It's always a great opportunity to hang with my fellow servicemen and women."
