Tom Voss served on active duty in the United States Army for three years in a scout-sniper platoon with the 25th Infantry Division. He was deployed to Mosul, Iraq.

Tom struggled with reintegration and was diagnosed with PTSD in 2008. After being pushed to the brink of suicide, Tom knew he had to do something to help himself heal. In 2013 he executed a 2,700-mile trek from Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Los Angeles, California. This journey was captured in the Emmy®-nominated documentary film, “Almost Sunrise.”

Tom is the co-author of the memoir “Where War Ends: A Combat Veteran’s 2,700-Mile Journey to Heal ― Recovering from PTSD and Moral Injury through Meditation,” published by New World Library, October 2019. He is the founder of the cooperative nonprofit Ojai Earth, which focuses on regenerating people and the planet through holistic practices like meditation and Yoga Nidra and education around permaculture design strategies for the earth.

Tom has been featured in the New York Times, Newsweek, USA Today, Fox News, Epoch Times, and The Hollywood Reporter for his work empowering veterans to overcome moral injury and PTSD. Tom has given presentations and lectures about his journey of hope and healing at Google, the Aspen Ideas Festival, New York University, The Harvard Club of New York City, and the United States Congress.
