ABOUT PAT

Hey there! My name is Pat Wheeler; I am a 4/c cadet here at the U.S. Coast Guard Academy. I’m originally from Maple Valley, Washington (about 45 minutes outside of Seattle). Last year I attended Marion Military Institute in Marion, Alabama as a Coast Guard Academy Scholar (also known as a “prepster”). At MMI I was the co-captain of the MMI Scuba Tigers, an outstanding military dive club through which I received my NITROX certification as well as my spearfishing license. My time at prep school definitely better prepared me for the Academy, immersing me in a military schooling environment and allowing me to better adjust to a course load similar to that of all U.S. service academies.

For sports I do IC’s (which are inter-company sports), Sandhurst, ballroom dancing, and Crossfit. I found one of the best things you can do here at the Academy to manage your stress levels is to stay active! Regardless of if you are on a varsity team or not, it’s important to take at least a couple hours a day to be involved in some form of athletics that you enjoy. In addition to the Cadet Blog Club I am also the 4/c Representative for the OCF (Officers’ Christian Fellowship) chapter on base. My cadet career here may just be starting, but I’m always eager to answer questions and discuss my time in prep school, my experiences so far at the Academy, or the Coast Guard in general. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me, my email is Patrick.Wheeler@uscga.edu.
