Paying it Forward
Being nominated can come with mixed feels.
On one hand it feels great that someone is thinking about you. On the other, it comes with some anxiety because of the unknown. But at the end of the day, the nomination I received for Warriors to Summits Gannett Peak changed my life.
Because the 2015 expedition was so transformative for me, I have now paid it forward by nominating several veterans who I know are ready to live their life. I want those that I nominated to experience this wonderful group of leaders and guides combined with the spectacular, healing power of the mountains. What I enjoyed most was just how positive and capable the leaders were.
It’s truly a life changing experience.
I owe my nomination to a great friend and patient advocate at OKC VA, and I hope to impact someone the way that my friend impacted me.
