What Veterans’ Organizations Are Saying About

HIGH GROUND
BOOK OF QUOTES

Wednesday, January 23, 13

High Ground was never just about promoting a film. We wanted to raise awareness of the courage, strengths, and challenges of our warriors once they return home. In order to do this, we partnered with and highlighted the hard work of over fifty-five organizations that work with veterans and their families. All were started by veterans, or someone in the military family. Some organizations are large, others are run by a handful of people. But each volunteer carries in their heart, a deep commitment to those who fight for our freedom. To find our partners go to http://highgroundmovie.com/ partners And, find us on Facebook!

“High Ground shows the connection of our veterans and military families to a healthy planet. Without mountains to climb, clean air, and cascading pure waters, where else can those who have been most affected by war go to heal? We need to ensure that similar resources are available here in the United States for all of our service members and military families, all of Americans. Thank you for showing in a deeply personal way the connection between human and environment, and how this connection can and does heal.” Stacy Bare, OIF Veteran, Executive Director Sierra Club, Mission Outdoors

HIGH GROUND DOCUMENTARY

"High Ground tells the story we need to see and hear. One of sacrifice, pain, hope, and healing. There are those who walk among us who have sacrificed so much for our benefit, namely veterans, spouses, children and parentd. We can't function as a civil society without recognizing their joy and pain. High Ground reminds us of them, and of what's possible when everyone aspires to something great."  -Carl Salazar, Founder and Chairman of Expedition Balance,
USNA ’89, Gulf War Veteran

“High Ground has become a foundation in my thinking; that on days when I am struggling, I think about these wounded warriors who climbed a mountain. If they can do something of such magnitude with such tenacity and grace, then surely I can put forth energy and finish my task at hand which is so minor in comparison.”
-Shelle Michaels Aberle, Founder & Director, Military Ovation
