Valor's Hike..."Walk Off the War"
Earl Shaffer said he was going to “walk off the war” after returning from World War II, and four months later became the first person to hike the entire Appalachian Trail. That same principle is what we're going to use to help combat veterans dealing with PTSD, TBI, Depression, addiction, etc. Working with local veteran organizations, drug courts, and rehab facilities, VV is gonna take groups of veterans on the Pinhoti trail. Located in North Alabama, the 3 day hike will have older veterans, family's of veterans, etc at each trail head to share their stories. Local organizations will provide meals at the trailheads also.
In 2024, we'll launch an initiative to let people donate homes, apartments, cabins, etc. for 2 reasons. 1) To allow Valor's Voice to provide free vacations veterans and their families. 2) Provide a re-entry home for homeless Veteran's, along with financial counseling and life planning.
