Wounded Veterans visiting Vail get a taste of adventure while sharing stories
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, what you went through and how good it can be again.
“The military gives veterans shared background and values,” Berschinski said.
People without any military perspective might not understand, Snell said, as he looked around at the people in town for this week’s Vail Veterans Program session while hanging out at the Larkspur restaurant at the base of Golden Peak.
