Since the dawn of time, hiking in boots and carrying heavy things has been an important part of military culture. A simple hike with a veteran company reminds us that the camaraderie we once had in the military will never truly die. We will always be there for each other. That is why IW’s Silkies Hikes will continue to hit the streets year after year.
Irreverent Warriors knows that the best support network for veterans is other veterans. We bring a community of warriors together through therapeutic events across the country. We also work with other veteran organizations that provide services such as job placement, training, housing, service dogs, and more.
The connections and bonds made at our events allow veterans to create their own support network solving the most crucial issue contributing to veteran suicide; isolation.
We have experienced pain, tragedy, and trauma – whether overseas or at home – and many of us have used humor as a coping mechanism.
Finding humor in difficult situations sheds some light on the darkness and helps us maintain a positive mental attitude and continue our mission.
