Domestic Acts of Bravery: Wounded Warriors Trek to Standing Rock To Show Solidarity

“If you want to come up here, bring a positive attitude and a peaceful mindset.” United States Army veteran and wounded warrior Chris Turley


A 250-mile trek. On foot.

Army veteran Chris Turley walked from Oklahoma to Standing Rock to show his solidarity and stand with its courageous water protectors. In this video, he and his brother Ernesto powerfully touch on the spiritual aspects of the protest, their duty to protect, and how Standing Rock inspires a sense of unity. About 2,000 warriors are expected to attend the protest.
