    Fully Paid Outward Bound Wilderness Excursions for OEF/OIF
    Veterans


    Outward Bound, an international non-profit outdoor education program, is
    offering fully funded outdoor adventure excursions to all OEF/OIF
    veterans.
    It doesn't matter what your current military status is (active,
    inactive,
    discharged, retired) - you're eligible to attend as long as you deployed
    in
    support of OEF/OIF combat operations while in the military.

    These five-day excursions offer adventure activities such as
    backpacking,
    rock climbing, canyoneering, canoeing, and dog sledding in beautiful
    wilderness areas in Maine, Texas, Colorado, California, and Minnesota.
    Scheduled courses from Sep 08-Feb 09 are listed below, and future
    courses
    will be scheduled soon. All expedition costs for lodging, equipment,
    food,
    and instruction are completely funded by a multi-million dollar Sierra
    Club
    grant, including the participants' round-trip transportation between
    home
    and the wilderness site. The excursion is offered at no cost to the
    participant.

    To sign up for one of the prescheduled courses, please contact Doug
    Hayward
    at 1-866-669-2362, ext. 8387, or simply e-mail him at
    obvets@outwardbound.org <mailto:eek:bvets@outwardbound.org> . To learn
