Including His Hike from Alaska to Mexico
Navy SEAL Vietnam combat veteran Greg Burham tells the story of his journey home from the jungles of Southeast Asia. After serving as one of the feared “Men with Green Faces” in Vietnam, Greg returned to an ungrateful nation and the scorn of his peers, as he struggled with what we now know to be Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Greg embarked on a journey of discovery that began with a hike from Alaska to Mexico on foot, a trip that restored his sense of self and redefined who he was to others. That epic hike put Greg on a path to his life’s work, helping veterans deal with PTSD–including veterans of the North Vietnamese Army! His work has played a role in removing the stigma that has prevented SEALs from getting help in the past and that is putting an end to the emotional pain our nation’s hero veterans too often suffer.
