The O’Connor Center for the Rocky Mountain West is a regional studies and public education program of The University of Montana in Missoula.  It focuses on the Interior West of North America – the region straddling the Rocky Mountains of the United States and Canada.  The University of Montana lies at the center of this region.  Through cross-disciplinary programs in research, teaching, and public education, the Center explores the region's rich history, current challenges, and emerging opportunities.

This week on Mountain West Voices: George Nickel survived the roadside bomb that killed his comrades in Iraq. Back home in Boise, Idaho, his readjustment to civilian life was a disaster. An armed standoff with Boise police led to jail, and almost a year of solitary confinement. Now George's life is dedicated to helping other combat veterans make the difficult transition to non-military life.

Mountain West Voices airs at the following times: Wednesdays at 7:30 pm on Montana Public Radio, and Sundays at 7:00 am on Yellowstone Public Radio. To hear more than 150 archived stories from around the Rocky Mountain West, please visit our website at http://MountainWestVoices.org.
