PLEASE LET VETERANS AND THEIR FAMILIES KNOW ABOUT THIS EVENT.

HELL OR HIGH SEAS follows U.S. Navy veteran Taylor Grieger, who previously tried to commit suicide, and writer Stephen O’Shea as they embark on the adventure of a lifetime — sailing around Cape Horn, the world’s most treacherous ocean waters.  The documentary is a moving portrait of a veteran using his own painful journey with PTSD to find healing for himself, and pave a smoother path for veterans returning to civilian life.  From director Glenn Holsten, producer Chayne Gregg, and executive producer Robert Irvine, HELL OR HIGH SEAS is an adventure film with a deep, universal message about perseverance and hope.

EVERY DAY IN AMERICA OVER 20 VETERANS DIE OF SUICIDE.  IT’S A DARK, IRONIC FACT THAT THE TRANSITION FOR MILITARY PERSONNEL INTO CIVILIAN LIFE CAN BE MORE DEADLY THAN COMBAT ITSELF.

A PORTION OF THE PROCEEDS FROM TICKET SALES WILL GO TO AMERICAN ODYSSEUS SAILING FOUNDATION, THE TAX EXEMPT 501(C)3 CO-FOUNDED BY TAYLOR GRIEGER.  THEIR MISSION IS PROVIDING ASSISTANCE AND RELIEF TO SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS WITH PTSD THROUGH ADVENTURE THERAPY WITH OFFSHORE SAILING EXPEDITIONS.
