Starting Friday at the Minnesota State Fair, you can meet a Minnesotan who is a survivor in every sense of the word.

U.S. Army Sergeant Patrick Zeigler was shot four times, including once in the head, during the shootings at Fort Hood in 2009.

He spent 800 days in the hospital recovering, but now lives independently with his family in Rochester, Minnesota.

Sergeant Zeigler will share his experiences Friday through Labor Day at the Mayo Clinic Mobile Museum. It's part of the clinic's 150th anniversary.
