Support The 4Cornershike

To start this hike, I sold everything I had. When I say everything, I mean everything. I was not that well to do but the drive and calling to make this hike happen was greater than myself and I was willing to do anything to help my fellow Veterans as I’m sure you are as well. I sold my electronics, furniture, collectibles, towels, kitchen appliances, even my pickup truck. I ended up with the items in my pack and three totes of sentimental items I couldn’t part with. Needless to say that there are several areas where funds will become an issue. Food, shelter, gear, shoes, monthly bills such as cell phone and GPS transponder, and more. It is through great Americans, such as yourself, that ensure this journey for our Veterans continues.

There are two main ways you can donate and support the hike. You can make a monthly donation and become a patron of the hike you should donate through my updates page on Patreon. Through Patreon, you can donate as little as $1 or as much as you can afford monthly. These funds for the things listed above and are tax deductible. Along with Patreon, there are perks and Patreon-only posts that you will enjoy. The other is for the charity that I am walking for, 4 Corners Charities. They help Veterans from all over the country and work close with smaller organizations that do amazing thing for our Heroes!

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.
