Ostrolenk speaks with Geordie Young, Civilian Team Co-Chair of the True Patriot Love Foundation. Young first discovered the True Patriot Love Foundation after being inspired by the Unbeatable Mind Foundation to search out a cause through which he could contribute to his community. The True Patriot Love Foundation works with veterans of the Canadian Armed Forces by hosting global expeditions, which help bridge the gap between military and civilian communities.
In January 2016, on an expedition Young has helped to organize, a team of civilians and Canadian veterans will hike Mount Vinson, the highest point in Antarctica. Young describes that the purpose of this mission is three-fold: to introduce civilian leaders to veterans and the amble talent and motivation that they bring home, to raise awareness and funds around the cause, and to instill confidence and purpose in veterans, many of whom are recovering from physical injuries.
