Outside My Wire

Mission: enabling combat veterans to share their wartime experiences on film, or through writing, achieving relief of emotional trauma.

Our purpose is to share these stories through the website and online media, providing a networking tool for struggling veterans to reach out to others with similar stories, showing them that they are not alone.

Dan McGuinness recently had a chance to share his story in a documentary. A story of his service “outside the wire”. A story of his injuries, his pain, and his suffering. A story of depression that lead him to the verge of suicide. A story he had bottled up for years.

His story is unique, but not unlike many other veterans. Dan knew his story could help others. Outside My Wire is a community for other to share their own stories. A community that encourages others that are bottling up these stories to get “outside their wire” and share. The process of sharing helps relieve the pain and helps others understand.

Pat served with Dan, and was inspired to share his story after hearing Dan’s. Pat’s story is unique to him, and equally powerful to watch. He’s another brave soldier, that ended up fighting a battle at home he didn’t see coming at all.

Lisa’s story is one only a mother can share. Released on Mother’s Day 2017, Lisa tells the story of her son, Dillion Naslund, and how he served and struggled. His struggle with PTSD eventually lead to him “completing” suicide (Lisa doesn’t use the term committed). However, Lisa and her family have chosen to share his story so he continues to serve, in hopes of helping just one other veteran or family.
