Brett Favre donates time to wounded Oklahoma veteran, family Published: June 12, 2014

MERIDIAN — With five children and a house to build, Oklahoma native and former soldier Rusty Dunagan is facing the challenges of life from a wheelchair, but a gift from a highly acclaimed actor and a pro athlete has brightened the summer for him and his family.

On Monday, Dunagan and his family arrived in Mississippi where Dunagan, a triple-amputee, met with retired NFL quarterback and Mississippi native Brett Favre. The family met Favre at the Lauderdale County farm of actress and Meridian native Sela Ward.

On arriving at Ward's farm, Favre said although it was billed as a training session, he and Dunagan might just throw the ball around and then go fishing.
