THE STORY:

Adele Loar wrote -

In 2006, US Air Force Master Sergeant Adele Loar was wounded in Iraq and lost two team members. For years Adele struggled with her injuries, a lack of confidence and guilt from surviving the incident. In 2014 she made a commitment to honor her fallen comrades and signed up for No Barriers Warriors: Mission Mount Whitney. The camaraderie she found in the mountains with No Barriers Warriors inspired Adele to live again.

Now Adele is intent on proving to herself and the world that she’s just as capable as she was before the attack. In April 2016 she will set on a thru hike of the Appalachian Hike from Georgia to Maine in honor of No Barriers Warriors. Adele follows in the footsteps of Earl Shaffer, the first person to hike the entire length of the Appalachian Trail, who said he was going to “walk the Army out of his system.” She plans to put to rest some of the ghosts that still haunt her and keep reaching.

Make a gift today to help Adele and No Barriers Warriors inspire other veterans to break through barriers and live a full life. Your generosity ensures that we are changing lives for the brave men and women like Adele who served our country.
