“I think the biggest problem is you get out and you just get no training on how to be a normal person.”

This reflection from a veteran in the new film Counter Balance by Gordon Klco is one of many we hear about the challenges of re-entering civilian life. The film focuses on these veteran’s issues while highlighting the power of nature to heal on a 4-day rafting trip on the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument. Veterans are given the opportunity to work together, express themselves, grow in the wilderness and use skills they have learned in the military in an extremely positive way.
