Aubrey Gladstone serves as the president of Gladstone Consulting, Inc., a problem resolution company specializing in aerospace, transportation, logistics, health care, employee leasing, and finance. In his time away from work, Aubrey Gladstone is a staunch supporter of Journey to Normal.

Journey to Normal is a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the stories of women veterans returning from war through its upcoming film Journey to Normal: Women of War Come Home. The idea was spawned in 2009, when a female veteran described her rehabilitation struggles to Oprah, and the film has been in production ever since. Journey to Normal is comprised of numerous interviews, both across the U.S. and abroad in Kabul and other outposts.

Though the organization’s main goal lies in getting an audience for its film and advocating for the struggles of women veterans, Journey to Normal has plans beyond the film. The nonprofit will continue to add stories to the site beyond the release of the film and provide a valuable community for women vets returning from war. Journey to Normal also hopes to provide not only video installations at specific venues, such as schools, museums, and libraries, for educational purposes for the general public, but also a variety of outreach programs for employers and schools. The ultimate goal is to create awareness and “bridge the gap between civilian and military life.”
