THE STORY:

Thor Peterson served in the Army's 10th Mountain Division, 4-31 INF. He was deployed to Afghanistan during Operation Anaconda, seeing combat in the Shahikot Valley. He served a later deployment during Operation Enduring Freedom in Djibouti, Africa. Thor was fun, loving, and loyal. He was the first person to help a friend in need- whether it was offering a helping hand, an ear to listen, or a shoulder to cry. To him, the worst kind of failure was letting his friends and family down. He put others first instead of himself. He was always cracking a joke, and had the brightest smile. He was electric, and had an energy that made you want to be his friend. In likeness to the Norse god he was named after he was fierce and tough. He didn't have to be the biggest guy in the fight to win because he was going to use his mental endurance to outlast his opponent. It appeared that he felt no pain. He walked quietly for years shouldering the burden on PTSD. Never showing the strain he was under his journey ended on March 8, 2015. Each day 22 Veterans are killed by suicide. From July 5-July 25 join the Peterson family (Wayne, Lynette, Linnea, and Cory) as we complete another 22 in 22 challenge to help bring an end to this epidemic. Run, walk, bike, hike 22 miles in 22 days to help raise awareness about the staggering rate of Veteran suicide in this country. You can donate, join our fundraising team page to help raise money, or just simply complete your 22 miles in 22 days to show your support.
