        Scott Winkler

        Scott Winkler was serving with the 549th Military Police Company out of Fort Stewart, Georgia, when they were deployed to Iraq in 2003. While unloading ammunition later that year, Winkler fell from a truck and severely injured his spinal cord, resulting in paralysis from the chest down. In 2006, he was introduced to discus and shot put at the Paralympic Military Sports Camp. Coaches agreed: Winkler had a natural talent. See his story, in this profile from Medal Quest.
