Description: VetEx’s documentary, “Reclaiming the Edge” gives a snapshot into the lives of veterans from the past 20 years of service as they work together to summit Grand Teton on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Their goal of the film was to to reclaim the intense physical and emotional experience of uniformed service missing in their current fatiguing civilian existence. Following the film, Scott Ostrom, a former Marine who served 2 tours in Iraq, will talk about the challenges and triumphs he has encountered since his service. Compelling photos, shot by Pulitzer-prize winning photographer Craig Walker, will accompany Scott ‘s words to further illustrate the incredible journey of returning home from war and overcoming PTSD. Veterans Expeditions is a Colorado-based non-profit that uses wilderness challenges to connect all veterans, create community and raise awareness. Our work supports the reintegration of veterans into society and empowers them to overcome the challenges many face following military service.
