Since 2002, over 50,000 US soldiers have returned home from Iraq and Afghanistan with their lives radically altered by injuries received during deployment. The challenges they face in returning to “normalcy” affect every aspect of society, from families and communities to our national character and legacy as a people. “Solders To The Summit” was a showcase expedition bringing together disabled war veterans with world recognized mountain climbers to demonstrate what could be achieved by climbing a Himalayan giant. A key outcome of the expedition is a documentary film produced by Emmy award winning filmmaker Michael Brown and Boulder Colorado based Serac Adventure Films. The film “High Ground”, which will be released to a national audience in 2012 tells the stories of these heroes and spreads an inspirational and healing message to the entire country.
Next Level Expeditions founder Kevin Noe met the expedition team in Nepal and the experience was one of the highlights of the Nepal journey. Kevin and his wife are proud supporters of the 2012 Soldiers to Summits Expedition to Cotopoxi in Ecuador, South America.
