Joseph "Chicky" Day

 
 
 

Chick was a man dedicated to family, his most important asset, cherishing his time with them all.  He had a special place in his heart for his grandchildren, who were a source of pride and joy.   His legacy as a man of love and loyalty will be held forever in the hearts of those whose lives he touched.

Chick served proudly in the Army during the Korean War.  To remember him in honor, a memorial contribution to Warrior Expeditions would be a living tribute to his memory and veterans of all generations.

Warrior Expeditions

Warrior Expeditions is a veteran nonprofit outdoor therapy program that supports combat veterans transitioning from their military service by participating in long distance outdoor expeditions. Historically, military units would experience a lengthy journey home after fighting a campaign abroad. During this journey home, warriors would process and come to terms with their wartime experiences. But in today’s age of modern transportation military personnel can find themselves home within a few days of serving in a combat zone. Warrior Expeditions gives veterans that much-needed space and time through a long-distance outdoor expedition alongside other veterans who understand the challenges of transitioning from military service to civilian life. Interaction with communities along the way facilitates veterans’ reintegration into society, restores their faith in humanity, and builds a network of life-long friendships. Warrior Expeditions provides veterans with the equipment and supplies required to complete a long distance outdoor expedition, coordinates community support in the forms of transportation, lodging, and food from veteran and community organizations located along the route and assists veterans with job placement opportunities at the completion of their journey with the program’s numerous sponsors and partners.
