Lander native Dustin Kisling graduated from the US Naval Academy in 2007 and became a Navy SEAL. After serving three tours, he got out of the Navy and worked as an engineer for several oil and gas companies. But, as his mom Lisa Kisling tells County10, "that wasn't his first love." Dustin saw a need to pair elite Veterans with elite athletes. So he and another Veteran started their own company, Myrmidon Expeditions
which is currently based out of
Boulder, Colorado. Their mission is to provide leadership opportunities to
Veterans, athletes and the general public.
According to the website, Myrmidon Expeditions is a premier outdoor
adventure platform connecting elite veterans, athletes, and civilians in
the most challenging endurance expeditions around the globe. Myrmidon grows
leaders both mentally and physically. More than your standard outdoor guide
service, they fully screen their participants, and put them in positions of
responsibility to grow their confidence and abilities.

and also just biked from Omaha Beach across France. Today, June 6th the
crew is summiting Mont Blanc in honor of Veterans.
