Petty Officer Ken Brookins US Navy
Ken served four years in the US Navy as a Hull Technician. After his service he and his brother were trimming trees when he fell off of a ladder, the impact breaking his back and injuring his spinal cord.
Since then Ken has joined his wife managing a number of franchise fitness centers, and is very active in the Veterans Wheelchair Games, participating in many events including backstroke, freestyle and breast stroke. Adaptive sports such as alpine sit skiing, biking and swimming have made it possible to be active with his 12 year old son and hopes some day like to be able to enjoy scuba diving with him as well.
