Full Ruck -- A Veteran in the Wilderness
An inspirational story about the healing power of wilderness. When Veteran Josh Brandon was a Company Commander, he and his lieutenants taught themselves to climb and found it to be better than any kind of medication or therapy they were getting at the time. Since then, the mountains have become a new home for Josh, who now runs the Sierra Club's Military Outdoors program. A film by Brian Mockenhaupt shot during a recent Adventure Film School. "Too many people pity vets-- or feel bad that they went through combat, and a lot of vets suck that right up... and bullshit! What made you great and what we're supposed to honor you for what you've done should be the same attitude that you have back in the Unites States; so if you were a leader and a warrior in combat, you should be a leader and a warrior here. You don't need help from society, society needs help from you."
