April is Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Month
We would like to invite everyone to participate in as many events as possible as we strive to promote awareness and prevention of sexual assaults in the military.

No Barriers Warriors 2015 programs
Mission: We empower veterans and transitioning service members with disabilities, and survivors of the fallen, to overcome barriers and unleash their potential. Our experiences serve as both an opportunity for growth and catalyst for change as these brave men and women stretch boundaries, build teams, innovate through adversity and step up to lead and serve others. Complementing the reintegration process, this program provides quality transformative experiences that inspire warriors to grow and continue to contribute their absolute best to the world.
Our journey-based expeditions range from one day to three weeks in length, and have taken us to Nepal, Ecuador, Peru, the South Pole and locations around the US.
