Climb higher. Go further. Dig deeper.
Soldiers to Summits (S2S) empowers veterans to overcome barriers and reclaim lives. In this program, mountains serve as both metaphor and training ground for wounded soldiers as they stretch goals, build world-class teams, innovate through adversity, and step up to lead and serve others. Integrated with the rehab process, S2S helps soldiers restructure how they approach their past and future.
