My name is Alana Antonich, and I am a 9 year Army veteran. I served in Iraq from 2008-2009 as a Behavioral Health NCO. I was honorably discharged from service in December 2014, after an intense battle of being diagnosed with a seizure disorder shortly after returning home from deployment. Truthfully, it’s been a long, tough road as I transition into civilian life, a daily struggle, but a battle worth fighting. I am a single mother of an amazing 11 year old girl. In my free time I enjoy kickboxing, hiking, and reading. One day, I hope to be in a position to share my experience and my story with other veterans to help them overcome the obstacles of the transition into civilian life. I am walking because I too attempted suicide, and if it wasn’t for my battle buddies I wouldn’t be alive today. So, I am walking to show all veterans that they are not alone, we are here, you are loved, and YOU CAN DO ANYTHING! Remember to reach out, check in, save a life! One love, thanks for your support!
