A Must See, 6 March 2012
Author: Jana Zunich

This movie is more than a story of people climbing mountains. It's a touching and disturbing true account of the plight of returning soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan, what they have been through, how they are struggling to reestablish themselves into daily life and how Soldiers to Summits is helping.

Touching: Hearing the soldiers' stories; seeing their emotional growth as they learn to scale mountains; seeing their faces as they accomplish their goals.

Disturbing: Realizing how poorly our returning veterans are treated; understanding what they have endured; wanting to do something about it.

It's a movie that makes you laugh, makes you cry, makes you wonder how people go through what they do and survive. It's something we should all see to face the reality of what happens when soldiers return home.

Gorgeous scenery, beautiful score, it's a movie that calls you to action for our returning soldiers.
