Wounded Veterans visiting Vail get a taste of adventure while sharing stories
March 13, 2020

VAIL — If you asked central casting to send you overachievers, you’d get back any number of participants from the Vail Veterans Program. Dan Berschinski and Steve Snell, for instance. All that’s good, they say, but shared experiences and values are better — to be around people who understand what your life was like before,… Read more »

Testimonials

“I left the Caregivers Retreat truly feeling like I’ve added a dozen sisters to my family. Life has been rough lately and stress is at an all time high. I lost my self identity, lost interest in doing things I used to love and fell into a depression I couldn’t shake. I left Vail feeling… Read more »

Chelsi Taylor, Military Caregiver

“After I understood the extent of my injuries, I realized that I might not make it out of this alive, and I wasn’t certain if it would be a life worth living, with a body worth living in. There was so much that I still wanted to do and so many people to live for…. Read more »

Army CPT Greg Galeazzi (Ret.)

“This program is a lifeline. It wasn’t just a lifeline for the disabled vets that are struggling with depression and needed to get out, or those struggling with their rehab and trying to explore new hobbies, it is also a lifeline to those disabled vets who needed to meet other injured service members and connect… Read more »

People that don’t know these things, they want… Read more »

Army SFC Henry Escobedo (Ret.)

Being at the Vail Veterans Program has been an eye opener for me. I am so protective of Greg and sometimes I wonder if I am more nervous about everything than he is. But seeing him say, “Go faster” when he was horseback riding lifted my confidence in him so much and it is such… Read more »

Army SGT Greg Foster (Ret.) & Colleen Foster

My wife and I would like to thank the Vail Veterans Program for the great opportunity to visit Vail in January 2012.  We are very humbled by the generosity of the Vail community and the Vail Veterans Program.  I did not think it would be possible for me to learn to ski after losing both… Read more »

Army CPL Kevin Dubois (Ret.)

Golf, for me, is physical and mental. Physically, golf has improved my balance and core strength, swinging a golf club is no easy task, especially on prosthetics. Mentally, when I get frustrated by the daily obstacles of wearing prosthetics and being in a wheelchair its nice to be to go out and hit a few… Read more »
