Since 2016 the Vacationland Skydiving has been teamed up with The Maine Veteran’s Project  in Pittsfield, to help Veterans with PTSD reclaim their lives in an amazing way. After beta testing their idea for taking Vet on tandem jumps the project has grown with great success using adrenaline therapy.

According to their site:

The resounding success and realization that the effects of the skydiving activities where restoring healthy life characteristics into veterans, suffering from PTSD, was worth continuing.

Because of the staggering numbers of suicides among Vets who have returned home , estimates are 20 per day, the Windy Warrrior program offers help and healing for them and their families.

The Windy Warrior – Adrenaline Therapy Project ™ (WW-ATP) program was established to continue to help our “at risk” Veteran’s struggling with PTSD, suicidal depression & thoughts.

If you know a Vet who might benefit from this kind of experience all the details can be found here.
