John McKenna (left), strength conditioning coach at Notre Dame High School in Lawrenceville, N.J., talks with Maj. Edward Dowgin, executive officer of the New Jersey National Guard's 117th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, during the unit's de-mobilization at the Soldier Readiness Processing Center on Fort Hood, Texas, Jan. 16, 2013, upon their return from Afghanistan. McKenna and Dowgin's friendship developed when the two formed a partnership where McKenna began strength training a lot of the 117th's Soldiers on his own time, for free, before they deployed.
