Our local community is home to many veterans, many of whom are living with a disability. For the third year, Jones-Onslow EMC, in conjunction with one of our financial partners, is searching for disabled veterans from its service territory to nominate for the No Barriers Warriors Expedition Program, a Colorado-based nonprofit organization.
The program, sponsored by Co-Bank, provides expeditions that mentally and physically challenge veterans on outdoor excursions through mountaineering, rafting, and rock climbing. Co-Bank covers the full cost for participants, including meals, gear, and travel expenses. These five-day expeditions offer veterans an opportunity to challenge limitations (both real and perceived) and to create a network of support that can last a lifetime.
