How have veterans with PTSD - and other mental health conditions due to their service - coped during this pandemic?

Summit for Soldiers is a nonprofit that offers what it calls “adven-therapy” - outdoor activities including bike rides, trail hikes and mountaineering expeditions - as a path to healing and recovery for veterans, service members and family members who are living with, or suffering from, mental health injuries or loss to suicide.

Steve Redenbaugh is co-founder of Summit for Soldiers, which has chapters in Ohio and here in Tennessee.



Ray is the host and producer of Scenic Roots, Mondays - Thursdays at 3 PM on WUTC.
