Posted Nov 30 2008 12:15pm
Due to the popularity of the initial Veterans program, the available slots filled up fast. Outward Bound is now opening an additional 400 slots for their 1/1/2009 – 3/31/2010 schedule. All costs, to include lodging, food, equipment, staff instruction, and state-side roundtrip transportation to and from the expedition site, are fully covered by a generous grant from the Sierra Club Foundation.
Any military veteran of either Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan or Operation Iraqi Freedom can apply for an expedition. Family members are not eligible. However, the Sierra Club funds other military programs that do include the entire family.
How to Sign Up
Enrollment opens on Tuesday, October 14th at 1:00 pm Eastern Standard time on the Outward Bound website. Slots are sure to go fast again this time so submit your application right away. This is program is a great way to thank veterans for their service.
