Video: Adventure Not War

Most of us probably already recognize the transformative power of nature and adventure to help us lower our stress levels and maintain a healthy, more balanced life. But this is even more evident in this clip, which takes us into the mountains of Iraq, where we join U.S. Army vets who go back to the country that has left an indelible mark on their psyches. But this time they aren’t going there to wage war, but are instead seeking adventure. The men take part in a ski expedition into the mountains, where they learn to heal some old wounds, discovering a lot about themselves along the way. Truly powerful and moving, this is a video you shouldn’t skip.
