Tracy Garcia joined the U.S. Army as a 71L administrative support specialist and worked as a missile repairer and records sergeant. During her service, she deployed to the Persian Gulf and Panama.
Garcia often feels anxious and closed off since separating from the military. In an effort to rid herself of these binding chains, she is pursuing a degree in psychology and participating in the expedition.
She is confident that meeting other veterans and accomplishing goals as a team will enable her to get back on track physically and mentally. Garcia hopes to use the experience as an opportunity for team members to remind one another they are not alone in their daily battles.
