Outward Bound Wilderness has scheduled numerous wilderness adventures exclusively for our war veterans and they will fully fund these courses for all participants, to include their roundtrip travel costs between home and the excursion site. Their goals include helping participating veterans build a supportive community with other war veterans; facilitating discussions on readjustment and transition challenges; and re-energizing and reinvigorating our veterans' spirits with adventures and challenges in the beautiful outdoors.
Outward Bound offers this tremendous opportunity for adventure and self-discovery to our veterans of combat operations in Afghanistan (Operation Enduring Freedom) and Southwest Asia (Operation Iraqi Freedom) through generous funding by the Military Family Outdoor Initiative Project.
Eligible candidates are accepted on a first-come first-serve basis so applications should be submitted as soon as possible. Help us spread the word and let our veterans know about this remarkable opportunity.
Complete information and the recently announced 2009/2010 schedule can be found on the Outward Bound Wilderness web site.
