Taylor's Thoughts on CM

A HUGE shoutout to CM and Josh Hansen for the great things they do for all of us Veterans. CM has been a life changer for myself and other Vets. I would'nt be doing what I love without this great organization and all of the other Vets that put their time and effort into Continue Mission. CM will always have a place in my heart. Great organization and awesome people coming together to do the things we love. You're all awesome!

Audrey’s Continue Mission Story

Hi! I am an Army Vet with PTSD. For the last few days, I spent them with Continue Mission (CM) on a Winter Retreat for Vets! CM worked with the National Ability Center (NAC) in Park City, UT and they put on a fabulous retreat for the Veterans! We stayed at the lovely NAC lodge, all meals provided (great food), Silver King Cafe Chef Jason cooked us a very healthy meal and we took a cooking class with him. We climbed the rock wall at the NAC which is so thrilling and builds great confidence. We did winter sports such as skiing, Nordic, snowboarding, hiking, biking... We all had fabulous instructors with us the whole time we participated in a sport. This experience for me is an awesome team building experience that helps with all mental health, physical, adaptive, and whatever your need may be. It opened my eyes to an awesome adventure to get out and heal with recreational therapy. Please register with CM and please, please join us in all future retreats! Josh and Laura, the founders of CM are so very supportive of all Veterans and they do really, really, really care about and want to help all Veterans! Please come see and experience for yourself!

Thanks Josh and Laura for the awesome day on the slopes! Couldn't beat all the fresh powder that fell all day! It was great to spend the day with other vets, and to surf through all the fresh pow! Lunch was great and it was awesome to see the pathfinder in person. Can't wait to come spend the day with you again! I am excited to see the pics Brian Smyer took!

Joslyn’s Experience with Continue Mission

I had an amazing time with Continue Mission's first Veteran's Retreat at the National Ability Center. I was able to do something I'd not done in 30 years.... Ski. My first experience skiing was very traumatic. And as a result I refused to get back on skis. On our first day, we all bonded at the rock climbing wall. I am terrified of heights, however I went up twice on the wall I was afraid to look down let alone repel down. But I came down, no bones broken and no one was harmed in the process. We went to Park City Mountain Resort after the wall. I felt I conquered one fear, let's tackle another. I was fitted for boots and skis. I couldn't believe I was doing it. Over the years I had been very adamant about not putting two little sticks on my feet while holding two twigs to support me. The last time, it was very traumatic. My instructors with the National Ability Center, were AMAZING! Jim and Kyle took their time with me. Jim adapted my lessons and worked with my limitations. My goal was to go beyond the physical limitations of my body and beyond the mental limitations I had placed on myself due to the trauma of the past. Continue Mission or Charlie Mike is about never giving up. As Veterans we have a different mission. To keep ourselves and our brothers and sisters in arms active, engaged and most importantly, ALIVE. This retreat gave me a renewed confidence and a feeling of accomplishment. I met new friends, learned some new skills, and I learned our mission isn't over after the uniform. It Continues. I am grateful to Sergeant Josh Hansen US Army (retired) and Laura Cantin for CM, for this great opportunity, and for all you do to Charlie Mike

A Grateful Vet

I just watched the Continue Mission documentary online on BYU TV. I could'nt get my eyes off my comoputer screen and was hanging onto every word I heard. I am still in, been serving for 17 years. I did 5 tours downrange. I see myself going again at least one more time. I can relate to absolutely everything y'all shared in the documentary.

Just wanted to thank you for what you are doing for the vets. Maybe one day, I will get out of the house and join y'all.

 

 In memory of those who have given their lives for our country.
