The organization measures impact primarily through face-to-face engagements with the Veterans who join them on their trips. Whether it's seeing their faces and demeanor change when they hook a fish or put an animal in a scope, learn rescue and recovery tips on an Overland adventure or around the campfire and table after a run, or get into the back country on motorcycles and explore places most people never see, the impact on their lives is immeasurable. They continue to communicate with past trip recipients through social media platforms and have partnered with other non-profits around the country to refer Vets to services that are best equipped to help depending on their specific needs. Oftentimes this three-part organization is on the front line that gets these Vets "off the couch" and begins their integration back into normal societal roles simply by re-establishing the "esprit de corps" they all knew when they served and that is missing from many Veterans' lives after they separate from military service.
