Years ago growing up in rural Laporte County, Indiana, I would have never dreamed life would take me on such a winding and twisting journey that would ultimately lead to the creation of my pioneering work, the ladder upp. After graduating from Laporte High School, I attended Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN, and then was commissioned an officer in the US Marine Corps.
While a US Marine, I was in a tragic jet crash that broke my back and killed my co-pilot. This horrible event and the complications that followed left me a shell of a man and I descended into the hell of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. My life fell apart and on the day I was discharged I hit the road on the back of a motorcycle to look for a new beginning.
Since that journey began, I’ve published an internationally distributed outdoors magazine, Bearfoot Magazine-Journal of Northern California Outdoors, started a successful advertising and marketing business, Silouan Green, LLC.
“Silouan is America’s Phoenix: He turned himself from the ashes of his plane’s fire, and rose youthfully alive to live a renewed and free life. He wants you to take action and take your journey, an American Journey to Live Free.”
