    Event Description:
    The American Legion Post 584 supports the Warrior Expedition Hikers arriving in Big Bear Lake The Warrior Hikers will be arriving at The American Legion, Post 584 in Big Bear Lake and will be greeted with a bbq & music provided by the "Culinary Cowboys" from The American Legion Post 291 in Newport Beach on April 28th from 12 noon-6:00 p.m. @ Post 584. Since 2001, over 2.5 million veterans have returned home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but many of them have never transitioned from their experiences. The Department of Veteran Affairs estimates that over 20% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. In 2012, after returning home from combat deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, Marine Corps veteran Sean Gobin hiked all 2,185 miles of the Appalachian Trail. Recognizing the therapeutic effects of long distance hiking, Sean founded Warrior Expeditions. Veterans participating in the 2018 PCT trail hike served on active duty in the Navy, Army & Marine Corps and were deployed to Kuwait, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria. All Veterans and interested community members are encouraged to stop by to learn more about how to support the Warrior Expeditions https://warriorexpeditions.org and The American Legion https://www.legion.org.
