Our Veterans Engagement Associate, Sidney Covington, participated in the Irreverent Warriors Chicago and Milwaukee Silkies Hikes. Irreverent Warriors is a non-profit that was created to prevent veteran suicide by bringing veterans together to provide humor and camaraderie. The annual Silkies Hike is the organizations largest event that takes place throughout the nation. The purpose of the Silkies Hike is to bring veterans together to improve mental health and to honor the military’s old tradition of wearing silkies.
