Soldiers to Summits, a program sponsored by the nonprofit No Barriers USA, has been key, said Baskis, who took part in the 2010 climb that spawned the new veteran outreach program. The initial expedition in the Himalayas by a group of 11 veterans, accompanied by 10 Mount Everest climbers, is the subject of a documentary film, “High Ground.” Released in U.S. theaters earlier this month, the film by Academy Award-winning producer Don Hahn covers the journey from start to finish and spotlights veterans searching for peace amid some of the world’s harshest terrain. A special screening was recently held at Patch Barracks in Stuttgart, home to U.S. European Command.
