The first combat amputee to climb and reach the summit of Mount Everest!

 

Wounded Vet Charlie Linville

PLEASE SHARE THIS INSPIRING STORY & HISTORICAL EVENT!

Wounded U.S. vet Charlie Linville became the first combat amputee to climb and reach the summit of Mount Everest. This is what we mean here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT when we talk about ascending the summit with our military veterans and with your support and participation!

The Heroes Project announced Thursday that 30-year-old Idaho native and retired U.S. Marine Corp Staff Sgt. Charlie Linville had reached the 29,029-foot summit of the famous mountain. It was the third attempt to reach the summit by the Boise High School graduate after previous tries in 2014 and 2015. Linville was defusing bombs in Afghanistan in 2011 when he was injured as an explosive device detonated, leading to the amputation of his right leg.

Thus it is our honor and pleasure to share this inspiring story and historical event with all our online friends and supporters. Watch the attached video and be inspired! And please visit our online site to learn more about the 59 VETERANS PROJECT. And our soon-to-launch enterprise to help veterans find careers in 4K and VR videography and photography while traveling, filming and ascending many lofty summits throughout our magnificent 59 national parks!

59 VETERANS PROJECT: Coins On Military Veteran Gravestones!

Coin on Gravestone
CAN YOU SPARE SOME CHANGE? THEN SHARE THIS!
There’s a tradition that’s been around for a very long time when it comes to our national cemeteries and the grave sites of our military heroes. If you’ve ever visited these reverent precincts you may have seen this tradition in practice.
What you may have seen is a penny or nickel or dime or other coin on a veteran’s gravestone. And wondered why it was there and what is its significance. Well, all of us here at the 59 VETERANS PROJECT can tell you that its significance is rather profound and very meaningful. Watch this very poignant and informative video here and join us in honoring our U.S. veterans and fallen heroes. It’s an event we enjoy doing all year-long!
And when you get a chance, click on the Contact Us button near the right top of our FB page to visit our online website and learn more about our project and how you can participate and get involved in our noble enterprise. We can’t wait to hear from you!  But first go here: https://www.facebook.com/59veterans/?ref=hl

SHARE WITH ALL YOUR NATIONAL PARK LOVING FRIENDS!
Courtesy of the 59 VETERANS PROJECT, veteran boots are now hitting the ground in our National Parks, as our project draws ever closer to fruition and actuality. Here we have the pleasure of sharing two unique pics–one of an early morning frame from a 4K3D video taken in Joshua Tree National Park on December 9th 2015.
As you may know, Joshua Tree National Park is one of our most treasured 59 national parks, and it is a reverent and phenomenal region of our country worthy of the most dedicated hiker, biker, jogger, rafter, bird-watcher, photographer, videographer, camper, tourist and outdoors person among us! Beauty and splendor are just two words that aptly define and vividly express Joshua Tree National Park!
We hope you enjoy our two video frame photos and become part of our enterprise to help military veterans when we formally commence our project to teach and find them careers in 4K3D videography and photography. To learn more, visit our headquarters company online here: http://59veterans.com/. For you know, we simply can’t wait to start ascending the summit together!
