Veterans on Warriors Keep HikeRecently, Warrior’s Keep conducted their Veterans Excursion (Vet-Ex), an activity held twice a year in Rocky Mountain National Park. They believe engaging in outdoor adventures allows therapy to naturally take place. They give veterans a chance to bond and reflect on their time in the military.

Brian White, Internal Audit Manager, participated in Vet-Ex during this past Veterans weekend. Brian’s wife recommended he apply for the excursion and gave him the information. He enjoyed getting to know other military personnel and connecting with nature.

The weekend included hiking to the “trailhead” and a 5-mile climb up the mountain to an elevation of 11,000 plus feet. Despite the difficult hike and single digit weather conditions, the team came together and motivated each other in true military form. The final day was spent crossing a frozen lake and ascending nearly 500 feet to Dream Lake. The views were spectacular.

“I thoroughly enjoyed meeting and connecting with other veterans and sharing experiences and resources that will benefit us in our individual needs. It made me proud to know that I work for a company that is truly committed to serving those who have served our country.”
