Our veterans and national parks is almost a union made in heaven. The 59 Veterans Project will be bringing the two together in amazing ways to benefit each other in equally amazing ways, especially veterans who will be learning a new vocation and profession and viable means of self-support.
As it is, our military veterans and national parks go way back. Here is a photo of Pearl Harbor survivor Hal Mayo, a US Navy veteran (seated), shaking hands with Ranger Gary Bias, a US Army veteran, during a Warrior Hike event at Yosemite National Park this past June.
