"Veteran Overland saved my life. I met Will and Jeff in a very dark point in my life. I was recently divorced and had lost everything i'd worked for in the last 20 years. There was an instant connection and feeling of being apart of something greater than myself that I didn't know i was looking for since leaving the military. Without them and the rest of our crew I don't really know where i'd be right now. I owe them far more than i can ever repay."
“We’ve been proud to support Veteran Overland at our events for a number of years now. Simply put, they efficiently do awesome work, not just working with vets directly but also educating the broader community on how we can be more supportive. We’ve been continuously impressed at how inclusive they are and willing to talk with everyone at our events because they understand that bringing folks together makes us all stronger.”
"Veteran Overland is an amazing organization. For me, it was very hard to not have that comradery every day after leaving the military. I have found that again in V/O. My first outing with V/O, I knew one person going into the adventure. At the end of the weekend, I felt as if I had 20 new brothers and sisters for life. I have made some incredible lifelong friends, some great memories, and am looking forward to more in the future. The work they do and the inclusion they have for the Veteran community and its supporters is top notch. I am blessed to be part of the organization."
"When I joined Veteran Overland, I had no idea how quickly these guys would become my brothers. When I was shot [by a gun] in early May, my V/O family stepped up to provide financial and emotional support. They checked in on me and my wife - little did I know they were scheming to get me back out into the woods as soon as possible. They were there for us when we needed them most."
"I love spending time with all of these guys and hearing what they have done to help the veterans and also what the future holds for them. Veteran Overland is very amazing people. Looking forward to traveling across the country to spend more quality time with them."
"I’ve worked for Veteran Overland for four years. I love what they do. It’s awesome to see the connections that are formed and to be a part of the experiences that bring such excitement!"
"My son Noah and I were lucky enough to be selected for the pilot vet connect trip, and I can truly say it was an honor. From start to finish the entire team at V/O curated an experience that's nearly impossible describe; the places, the trip, the experiences and most of all the people we came to know and love all mixed together to create memories not soon forgotten. Not only did I get to experience a sense of comradery and adventure that is all too often lost to veterans, but I was able to share this with my son. I'm not a 'sticker' or 'club' guy normally, and I can tell you that I joined V/O, I rock their stickers/patches and yes....I even wear their T shirt (and so does Noah). These folks, and what they're doing are THAT good."
"I was lucky enough to win a giveaway for entrance to panhandle overland rally in idaho. Over the weekend at panhandle overland rally I got the privilege to meet and spend time with the folks at Veteran Overland. This couldn’t have come at a better time life in general has been taking its hit at me and this event and this special group of folks shed some much needed light! Sitting at the booth and hearing the passion for the organization and what it stands for was truly a blessing to see unfold. I believe in their cause and the future ahead for this organization!"
"These guys have a way of making guests feel welcomed and like, we are immediately a part of their crew. The group and the way they structure their event is reminiscent of a convoy on patrol, and when they hit the mountain trails, they leave no one behind. They are experts in vehicle recovery, and I'm also pretty sure they saved a man's life during my stay. A guy [a stranger] got his truck stuck in extremely low-temperature weather with no cold-weather gear and walked roughly five miles before randomly, and fortunately, coming across our campsite. The V/O crew didn't hesitate to help. I admired their dedication to their hobby, and I especially had a great time by the campfire exchanging stories, joking, and bonding with the crew. I appreciated how much V/O dedicates to recreating those bonds veterans wish for after their service ends. Thank you, guys, for the experience, and I hope to see everyone next time around."
"Veteran Overland is a great group of people doing something AMAZING! The experience they provide with the bonding, and healing has me extremely great full to have met such good friends! Thank you Veteran Overland! Love you guys!."
"Having just got out of the military on this past 9/11, I've been struggling a bit to get out of my shell. I felt as though I lost the biggest part of who I am. The biggest thing I miss from the military is the family, the group at V/O quickly became my family. Extremely supportive and welcoming to everyone and just continued on with the laughs and good times. I'm looking forward to seeing these guys more and building on the friendships that were made."
