A Missing Peace
Sierra Magazine, July/August 2011
Excerpt: "A year and a half after returning stateside I still had nightmares. I'd go five or six days without sleep. I had the shakes when I entered a shopping mall. That's when I realized I couldn't just tough it out, I couldn't fix it myself."
Veterans Reflect on War and Mountains
Sierra Magazine, March/April 2010
Excerpt: "None of these people had met before, and they'd had widely divergent war experiences. But they'd all heard, upon getting home, about Outward Bound Veterans Expeditions, and they'd all felt some kind of yearning, and they'd all seized the opportunity, and that amounted to something in common. And now here they were, eager to find a way to enjoy themselves."
New York Times, August 24, 2007
Excerpt: "The nine men who climbed to the summit of the Colorado mountain were combat veterans who had fought in Iraq, Afghanistan and Vietnam. Several knew the pain of bullets tearing through flesh. Others couldn't gather memories blown away by an explosion. Some had seen combat so close they killed with their knives. They were a wary group of strangers, guarded and slow to trust, who had arrived at the Outward Bound Wilderness school in Leadville, Colo., a few days before, wondering how a one-week course in the wilderness could help them heal."
