- Outdoor Odyssey: www.vetfoundation.orgThe wounded warrior program, conducted at Outdoor Odyssey, is run by the VET Foundation (Veterans Employment Transition Foundation), initiated by Captain Chris Hadsall with General T.S. Jones, U.S.M.C. (Ret.) General Jones serves on the Board of Directors for the VET Foundation and oversees the events at Outdoor Odyssey. The original concept was to conduct a session each quarter of the year in different regions of the US; however, after conducting four events in different locations, it became obvious that continuity of effort was impossible to achieve by ever-changing venues. Thus far, there have been 12 such events, and Outdoor Odyssey has hosted 9.
