The video is a montage showing several veterans actively participating in Warrior Expeditions’ outdoor therapy programs – including hiking, biking, and paddling – and comments/video of the founder of Warrior Expeditions, Sean Gobin (US Marine Corps veteran). Comments: Michelle Revoir (US Air Force veteran): “This is my second hike with Warrior Expeditions. I love it. I think this is an amazing, amazing program. It lets me kind of get back to who I am and what I want out of life.” Sean Gobin (US Marine Corps veteran): “Warrior Expeditions is a veteran nonprofit outdoor therapy program. We help veterans transition from their wartime experiences by doing these hiking, biking, and paddling trips all over the United States. The assistance that Warrior Expeditions gives to our veterans means a lot to me to me because I was really struggling when I got out of the Marines. A lot of times you come home from war, after witnessing the absolute worst of humanity and you really start to go down this black hole. The worst-case scenario is they turn to drugs and alcohol and ultimately suicide. The key is to … is to break that cycle. We send these veterans out for months at a time. It’s over that long-distance and long-duration of being out, in nature, where the healing occurs."
