There are sacrifices to be made when one is in the military. It's part of your commitment to be ready at a moments notice; for the enemy strikes without warning. To the best of our abilities, we fight for what is true and right. Many return home with no visible scars of battle, though mentally the fight never subsides. Every day that passes, another struggle begins. Anger, confusion, and distrust run a gambit on your sanity, resulting in events that could have been prevented, given the proper attention.
As an individual, I walk to Washington, D.C. in protest of the arduous military process one must go through to receive assistance for service connected disabilities. I personally have spent the past two years fighting, to no avail. With your support, our voices and our message can and will be heard. These situations can not continue to play out where homelessness, addiction, and death become your only options.
I hope that during the walk I can inform, learn from, and inspire people I meet along the way. It's time to see what these sacrifices were made for; one step at a time, across the very Country so many have fought to protect.
