Updates and Blog Posts

Facebook is where I do most of the updates, interact with supporters, and give live video updates several times a week. The main blog posts are updated and posted on Patreon with your support. It is where I share more personal and quirky stories as well as more pictures of the hike. Patreon is also how I fund the hike through great people such as yourself. These funds are used for my food, gear, permits, and to keep my cell phone and GPS transponder on. There are also other perks to being a sponsor from my Patreon page click here.

Facts about PTSD and the Military. Please share to help raise awareness!

When you are in the military, you may see combat. You may have been on missions that exposed you to horrible and life-threatening experiences. These types of events can lead to PTSD.

The number of Veterans with PTSD varies by service era:

Operations Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Enduring Freedom (OEF): About 11-20 out of every 100 Veterans (or between 11-20%) who served in OIF or OEF have PTSD in a given year.

Gulf War (Desert Storm): About 12 out of every 100 Gulf War Veterans (or 12%) have PTSD in a given year.

Vietnam War: About 15 out of every 100 Vietnam Veterans (or 15%) were currently diagnosed with PTSD at the time of the most recent study in the late 1980s, the National Vietnam Veterans Readjustment Study (NVVRS). It is estimated that about 30 out of every 100 (or 30%) of Vietnam Veterans have had PTSD in their lifetime.

Other factors in a combat situation can add more stress to an already stressful situation. This may contribute to PTSD and other mental health problems. These factors include what you do in the war, the politics around the war, where the war is fought, and the type of enemy you face.

Please reach out to any Veterans that you know. Let them know that they matter and they are not alone.
