Kilimanjaro Climb for Valor 2017
Special Operations Combat Veterans, family members of Fallen Special Operations Soldiers, and civilians up the 19,341-foot peak. This year’s climb currently includes two Combat-wounded Veterans, the brother of a Fallen Special Operations Soldier, and the parents of a fallen U.S Airforce Combat Controller.
Up to eight civilian spots remain available for purchase.
The wounded Special Operations Combat Veterans, the team’s Warrior Climbers, are chosen from the Special Operations community for the perseverance and determination shown as they battle through extensive surgeries and rehabilitation programs resulting from combat injuries. Each of these men have made profound sacrifices in service to their country.
Warrior Climber Nick is approaching his 9th year on active duty with the last seven under the U.S. Army Special Forces Command as a Green Beret.
Warrior Climber Nate is approaching his 10th year on active duty with the last 7 under the U.S. Army Special Forces Command as a Green Beret. During these 7 years in the Special Forces community Nate has been deployed multiple times to numerous theaters including Africa and Afghanistan.
Today Nate and Nick are deployed in combat together, continuing to fight our nation’s enemies as U.S. Army Green Berets.
Funds will be raised to subsidize the cost of the climb for the soldiers and the Gold Star parents.
For the story of their injuries and recovery, please visit the Duskin and Stephens Foundation website.
