Operation Climb On was born out of my passion to continue to serve and be there for my fellow veterans however I can.  After leaving active duty, I found climbing, nature, and the friendships I had with other veterans were the most helpful things to me in getting my life on track after dealing with my own reintegration issues and moving forward with life.  Based on my own experiences we've developed this program for veterans using nature and climbing as tools to build camaraderie, trust, and promoting healthy lifestyles.  We are really excited for a new chapter of Operation Climb On being its own non-profit company now and are looking forward to being a resource for the veteran community for as long as we can!
