  • Six amputees and five wingmen who dubbed themselves the "Kilimanjaro Warriors" set out to scale the legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, a nearly 20,000-foot-tall mountain in Tanzania. The climb threatened to subject them to freezing temperatures, blinding snow and rugged terrain. Would they make it to the top? Here is a look at their journey, which begins on Feb.8 from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport with a pit stop in New York City, where police officers escort them from LaGuardia airport to JFK airport.
