Tee It Up for Veterans Golf Tournament

On July 17, 2023, a group of Colorado Veterans hosted the 2nd  “Tee it Up for Veterans” golf tournament benefiting Operation Circle Back, a national advocate for Colorado’s veterans, service members, first responders and their families. Operation Circle Back’s mission is to provide opportunities that improve the lives of trauma-exposed veterans and first responders through peer-to-peer support programs which foster camaraderie and healing. Operation Circle Back aims to give back to the families of these heroes in a way that they deserve.

In August of 2023, Operation Circle Back coordinated a 5-day outdoor retreat to include wilderness and communal experiences as therapeutic healing for U.S. veterans and active-duty service members. This program is unique among veterans and PTSD programs because it weaves wilderness therapy with philosophical discussions, physical challenges, and camaraderie in the outdoors. Read more…
