Nissan Titan Wounded Warrior project lands in time for Veteran's Day

Tue, 11 Nov 2014
We last featured the crowdsourced Project Titan pickup back in September, when Nissan revealed that its big, bruising custom pickup would take to the wilds of Alaska with a pair of veterans from the Wounded Warrior Project at the wheel.

Now, their journey across the wilds has been fully revealed as part of a 22-minute short film. David Guzman and Kevin McMahon are the pilots of the brutish truck, and while the film is ostensibly focused on the journey and the challenges that come with it, the release of the video on Veterans Day (Remembrance Day or Armistice Day, depending on where you're from), gives some indication to the dominant theme of the story – recovery.

The two travel across Alaska in the Titan on different missions, working with both veterans and civilians afflicted with post-traumatic stress disorder, as well as supporters of the Wounded Warrior Project. From the avalanche-surviving photographer who's suffering from PTSD to an Air Force veteran who routinely takes recovering vets on fishing trips, the pair experience the many efforts at recovery and support through throughout the course of the mission and their journey.

It's a great look at an extremely worthwhile cause, and there's a pretty neat truck making it happen. Be sure to take a look at what Nissan and the Wounded Warrior Project have come up with.
