No Barriers USA Warriors Expedition

Sioux Valley Energy is seeking disabled veterans who are interested in taking part in a 'No Barriers USA Warriors expedition' through the Cooperative's lender-CoBank. Veterans within our service territory with a VA disability rating may be eligible for one of four expeditions, all expenses paid. To learn more click here.

Sioux Valley Energy’s lender, CoBank, will sponsor two moderate-level expeditions that will take place July 5-9 and July 19-23. Expeditions will involve rafting, rock climbing, and trekking activities. Activities are specifically designed to accommodate participation by veterans with a wide array of disabilities. Two difficult expeditions offered August 3-7 and August 17-21 will involve a more physically challenging, backcountry itinerary and a mountain summit attempt.

The annual No Barriers Summit will take place October 5-6 in New York City. This opportunity is suitable for veterans of any disability level. If selected for the CoBank/No Barriers program, CoBank will cover all costs for the participating veteran, including travel expenses.

CoBank will identify and sponsor up to 50 veterans.
