Our Vision

The vision of Operation Circle Back is to harness the transformative power of outdoor and wilderness settings, recognizing its ability to enhance trauma-informed recovery efforts for veterans and first responders. We aim to create and sustain a permanent outdoor and wilderness environment dedicated to supporting individuals dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Our goal is to accelerate the development of skills to manage, reduce, and potentially eliminate adverse work-related traumatic stress reactions. Through this initiative, we are committed to improving the physical, emotional, spiritual, and overall well-being of veterans, first responders, and their families.
