New Director Appointed

We're pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Warner to the position of Director. Dan began with Operation Climb On as a participant and was later invited to become part of the veteran instructor team. Earlier this year he took over responsibility for website and social media management.

In regards to this appointment he said, "I feel both excited and humbled by the opportunity. Mike Cumming and Operation Climb On have been tremendously influential in my life, especially with getting myself back on track dealing with various combat-related stressors. The team at OCO is a phenomenal group of individuals, and I could ask for a better team to work with moving forward."


Dan enlisted in the Army in 2002 as an infantryman and deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and 2005. In 2011, he transitioned to the Army Reserve where he now functions as a Civil Affairs Team Sergeant. Dan is currently in his senior year at the University of Utah studying Parks, Recreation, and Tourism with an emphasis in Adventure and Outdoor Programming.
