CPL. SCHNEIDER'S FAMILY EMBARKS UPON MEMORIAL MOUNTAIN CLIMBS
Cpl.Kyle R. Schneider was an avid outdoorsman. Among the activities he most enjoyed was a lifelong love of mountain climbing in New Yorks' Adirondack Mountains. Kyle ascended many mountains in his young life and was well on his way to being a '46er'. NY has 46 'high peaks'; 4000' to over a mile in height, many with majestic views and very rugged and challenging trails. After the one year anniversary of Kyle's death, his family has resolved to honor his memory by first climbing all the many peaks he did with the intent, God willing, to continue that effort to all 46 high peaks and beyond. By neccessity we have started in the 'low peaks' (just feet under '4000', beautiful Blue mtn. and rugged Snowy Mtn.) and are working our way up. As you can see from the pictures we leave a small American Flag with a picture of Kyle attatched on the summit. We've recieved an incrediblely positive response from folks. Some have graciously donated to the foundation, another, a reporter, Tom woodman, called and interviewed Kyles' Mom. Kyle continues to inspire and brings out the best in people. Kyle's story is featured in the current issue (Nov/Dec) of the bimonthly magazine Adirondack Explorer Magazine (see: Park Perspectives: A Day on Bald Mountain). http://www.adirondackexplorer.org/
Honor the Fallen. Committed to Service. Courage to Carry On.
