Ep. 573: Iraq War Veteran Finds Peace Hiking the Triple Crown - Will “Akuna” Robinson

Enlisting in the Army at the age of 22, Will Robinson had no idea how impactful of an experience it would be. Although honored and proud to serve his country, he returned 5 years later a broken man. Mentally, physically, and emotionally, the next 12 years of his life would be a stumbling progression of surgeries and therapy, with the constant companions of depression and anxiety. 

That is until one day while flipping through channels, he saw the movie, Wild. Two weeks later, Will was at the southern terminus of the PCT.

The rest is well, now history. Will finished his last step of the Triple Crown just over a week ago, becoming the first African American man to complete the journey.
