The April issue of Outside Magazine is available on news stands now, featuring the Soldiers to the Summit Expedition. Check out "The Other Side of the Mountain" by Brian Mockenhaupt.
An Army veteran himself, Brian was embedded with the expedition, and despite virtually no climbing experience, reached the 20,075 foot summit of Lobuche Peak. Of his time in Nepal with the soldiers Brian says "...I was consistently inspired by their courage and determination in overcoming limitations imposed by their injuries, and their willingness to share very personal moments in their lives".
An outstanding and inspiring piece of work. Read the article here and check out the Outside Adventure Film School video interview with Brian below.
