No-Barriers_info-application An opportunity for veterans with disabilities to challenge themselves, overcome barriers and learn that “what’s within them is stronger than what’s in their way.”

Jones-Onslow EMC, in conjunction with one of its financial partners, is searching for a veteran from its service territory to nominate for the No Barriers Program. This program, sponsored by CoBank, provides expeditions that mentally and physically challenge veterans on outdoor expeditions through mountaineering, rafting and rock climbing. CoBank covers the full cost for veterans, including travel expenses. Veterans must have VA disability ratings to qualify.

JOEMC is searching for a veteran from its service territory to nominate for this program. For consideration, veterans with VA disability ratings should submit an application and a letter summarizing their military background, length of service and why they wish to attend the No Barriers expedition. The application and letter may be sent via email to Paula Redick or through the U.S. Post Office to Jones-Onslow EMC, Attn: Paula Redick, 259 Western Boulevard, Jacksonville, NC 28546.

The application deadline for the September No Barriers expedition is April 15, 2017. Click here to download an application or for more information or visit nobarriersusa.org.
