ADS Supports Soldiers to the Summit ADS

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

ADS Inc has donated C.L.S. Protective Combat Uniforms (PCU) by Beyond Tactical for use on the ascent of Lobuche East in the Himalayas. The climb by 12 wounded warriors is being put on by soldierstothesummit.org. ADS will have additional updates as the climb progresses from October 2 – October 21, 2010.

“ADS is committed to supporting our wounded warriors in all facets of their rehabilitation and we also pride ourselves on our expertise in cold weather clothing systems.” said Luke Hillier, ADS CEO. “Nothing could be more fitting than combining our passion for supporting our wounded warriors and our expertise in technical clothing systems to support these brave men and women on their road to recovery.”

Additionally, ADS is individually sponsoring Cody Miranda, one of the combat veteran climbers. Medically retired from the U.S. Marine Corps, Cody suffers from Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). He spent 18 years in the Marine Corps on seven deployments including Operation Desert Storm and Operation Enduring/Iraqi Freedom.
