"I had the opportunity to pair up with irreverent warriors on the Silkies hike this weekend. Made some new friends and got a new HHO member out. Irreverent Warriors are about
bringing veterans together using humor and camaraderie to improve mental health and prevent veteran suicide. This group was a great example of not leaving anyone behind. Many of my health issues have recently flared, and I'm still recovering from being sick, so I had to stop some on the way up castle rock mountain. Few checked on me, but I had my dancing vet in silkies motivating me to keep moving. We hiked all over, doing several miles, and stopped for games and refreshments. I look forward to more events like this and teaming up with them."
