One of Montana’s foremost voices on wilderness issues is Doug Peacock. He’s a decorated Vietnam veteran who says the time he spent in wilderness helped him recover from the psychological trauma he suffered in combat. Peacock continues to work with groups that bring a new generation of combat vets into wild places.
