"After I lost my leg, my therapist told me that I would never make it to the top of Mt. Rainier. Camp Patriot surrounded me with ‘Can Do” people who inspired me to train and persist. Reaching the summit was one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I could not wait to show my therapist the photo of me holding the American flag at the top of Mt. Rainier.”
