Dove Men+Care Deodorant Celebrates 2018 Warrior Games Participants
New video series highlights the inspiring stories of Russell Logan and Lee Montgomery
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., May 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In partnership with the 2018 Department of Defense (Dod) Warrior Games, Dove Men+Care Deodorant introduces two new films that highlight the stories of an athlete and coach participating in this year’s games. These two men embody an unwavering level of care and resilience that requires dedication and sweat:
- Former National Guard Tech Sergeant (Retired) Russell Logan, a first-year Warrior Games athlete will compete in cycling, archery and track & field. He is a father of three and served in the Air National Guard for 10 years until he was injured and assumed the position of Security Manager at the 164th Airlift Wing within the Tennessee Air National Guard.
- Lee Montgomery, a third-time competition manager of Wheelchair Basketball for the Warrior Games, has coached and mentored in the Games since 2011. He has played and coached Wheelchair Basketball for the last four decades and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2015.
In addition to showcasing each man’s journey to the 2018 Warrior Games, Dove Men+Care Deodorant recognizes the other admirable areas of their lives as coaches, mentors, fathers, and leaders. Whether at home with their families, in the gym with their friends, or at work, these men are committed to doing what is best for those around them. To prepare themselves for each aspect of their day, they rely on the superior odor, wetness and skin protection that Dove Men+Care Deodorant provides.
