Outdoor adventure is often an escape from the every day reality of what has happened in our lives. When you are young, and you experience one of life’s greatest tragedies, it helps to take a time-out from the truth. As Ezekiel Nole Hall tells us, A Soldier’s Child is a non-profit organization created to show some very special children just how much they are loved and appreciated.
In addition to the support the kids receive from A Soldier’s Child and all those who volunteer at the events, the older kids in the program also serve as mentors for the younger ones. You saw Jeremy Sanchez in our story and he says the saddest part of mentoring is seeing new kids added to the group each year.
