Blaine Holom served in the US Navy and deployed to Afghanistan. Stationed out of the Forward Operating Base Salerno, he was attached to task force 3-10 special operations. He separated from service in 2014.
Before his military service, Blaine enjoyed mountain biking and fly fishing, but he has found it difficult to connect with nature in the same way since separating. He looks forward to this expedition as an opportunity to find himself again, and to challenge his ways of thinking. Through the No Barriers program, he believes he will be better able to be the father and husband his family deserves.
