4 Veterans Are Rowing Across The Atlantic To Fight Veteran PTSD & Suicide

Four Veterans from Florida are rowing their way across the Atlantic Ocean to raise awareness and money for veterans who struggle with PTSD, as well as veteran suicide.

The veterans, who are friends from Florida, have started their own support community called “Foar From Home,” in which they’ve already raised more than $869,000 to help vets with PTSD, housing accessibility, and cognitive disorders.

Army vet Billy Cimino, Air Force vet Cameron Hansen, Navy vet A.M. Huppman, and Marine vet Paul Lore, have been on the ocean for 29 days and so far have rowed 1,608 nautical miles with another 1,240 miles left to go.

This particular rowing journey is part of the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge, which is a charitable initiative known as “The World’s Toughest Row,” where they row from San Sebastian in La Gomera, Canary Islands to Nelson’s Dockyard English Harbor, Antigua.

When they first started this challenge, they knew they would be able to help change the lives of a few veterans, but they had no idea of the enormous impact they would soon make.

Thanks to their efforts, as well as support from their community and fans, they are now able to build a kennel at K9s For Warriors, where they will train warrior service dogs for veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma.

Loving and living the journey until the last mile!

“We have been blessed to impact our veteran community in this way – all while this ocean crossing has reshaped our character, our hearts and our grace,” Lore told NY Post.
