Posted: Tuesday, July 08, 2008

FORT WAINWRIGHT - Two Fort Wainwright soldiers have scaled Mount McKinley.

Capt. Keelan McNulty and 1st Lt. Graham Ward of the 1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Stryker Brigade Combat Team, reached the peak in May.

McNulty planned the trip for more than three years, and trained for the climb by taking a mountaineering class at the University of Alaska Fairbanks.

The pair placed several unit coins at the summit and flew the unit's colors.
