Tim and Derek share their thoughts on SCOTUS decision to legalize gay marriage and open up marriage for all.
A follower of veganism is known as a vegan. Distinctions are sometimes made between different categories of veganism. Dietary vegans (or strict vegetarians) refrain from consuming animal products, not only meat but also eggs, dairy products and other animal-derived substances.
So, Tim has always wondered if there are challenges with being vegan during international travel.
Tim’s friend, Meghan, provides a glimpse into her experiences of traveling through Europe while vegan.

This week’s warrior is Army veteran Stacy Bare.
Stacy Bare is a skier, climber, mountaineer, and sometimes surfer who served one tour of duty in Iraq as a Civil Affairs Team Leader after being recalled from the Individual Ready Reserve. He received his commission into the United States Army from the University of Mississippi and is currently Director of Sierra Club’s Mission Outdoors program. Through direct programming, public education and advocacy, Mission Outdoors combats the growing divide between America and the outdoors by increasing opportunities for all to improve their overall well-being by exploring and enjoying the natural world.
The goal of Sierra Club Military Outdoors is to ensure that service members, veterans, and their families have the skills, exposure, knowledge, and confidence to access the great outdoors. Time spent in nature not only promotes mental health, emotional resiliency, and leadership development prior to deployment, it provides invaluable know-how to help returning vets enjoy and engage with nature upon returning from deployments. Many veterans experience difficulty adjusting to civilian life after leaving the service. Time spent outdoors eases the transition and improves both mental health and social skills. Providing service members, veterans, and their families with quality outdoor experiences will help foster the development of a new generation of Sierra Club leaders and supporters from within the military and veteran community, including family members who will work to actively achieve the Sierra Club’s mission and become outdoor leaders in their communities.

This week’s warrior is Lisa Pointe of Soles4Souls.
Soles4Souls is a global not-for-profit institution dedicated to fighting the devastating impact and perpetuation of poverty. The organization advances its anti-poverty mission by collecting new and used shoes and clothes from individuals, schools, faith-based institutions, civic organizations and corporate partners, then distributing those shoes and clothes both via direct donations to people in need and by provisioning qualified micro-enterprise programs designed to create jobs in poor and disadvantaged communities.
Lisa has been involved in numerous other philanthropic ventures, but Soles4Souls is her most exciting challenge yet. Thus far her career has enabled her to work abroad in Bosnia, South Korea, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Belize, and she is hopeful that this is just the beginning. She is passionate about connecting people with opportunities that make a true impact for those in need.
