Testimonies from Veteran Expeditions Testimonies Outward Bound Expeditions

Outward Bound for Veterans supports those returning from service in their readjustment to life at home. We see the power behind this work in Places Like This: A Veteran Expedition. Outward Bound sends veterans on group expeditions in the wild, harnessing the healing powers of teamwork and the wilderness.

The following are testimonies from veterans who went on one of Outward Bound's many expeditions.

"Since our return home we have all been forced to reinvent who we are and how we will fit back into the world we left behind. This trip has given me confidence, hope, and a sense of peace that I thought haven't had since before my deployment to Afghanistan."

"My experience in Iraq has left my life empty and miserable. I smiled and laughed more in the last week than in the last three years combined."

"I am a two-time combat vet that rarely has time to enjoy life. This is a new beginning for me and has lifted e out of my depressed state of mind. This program has given me a reason to start living and not want to die. Thank you!"

"Probably more important was my realization that they could have spent two years of weekly individual psychotherapy, and not reaped the therapeutic benefits of being on the ocean for 6 days as part of a team with a common objective"
