Veterans sought for trail program

March 22, 2013

HARPERS FERRY, W.Va. — The Appalachian Trail Conservancy, in partnership with Warrior Hike, Operation Military Embrace, the Military Family Lifestyle Charitable Foundation, the Veterans of Foreign Wars and the Appalachian Long Distance Hikers Association, launched an initiative called the “Walk Off the War” program.

The program will provide 13 military veterans the opportunity to reconnect with the United States through a fully funded scholarship to hike the Appalachian Trail.

The objective of the program is to provide veterans a self-directed, self-paced journey along the trail to help them return to civilian society with the greatest opportunity for success in their personal and professional lives.

Participating veterans are not required to hike the entire trail.
