has become a time of release for american military members and veterans suffering from p-t-s-d. a native american sweat lodge on fort carson in colorado is one of the first on a military base. jessi mitchell takes a look inside the sacred ritual that's a growing trend among vets. :41 1:37 2:05 this is the l lota sioux inipi -- a traditional sweat lodge, made of willow branches and donated quilts. it's been here since the 90s. "they didn't have a clue as to what we were doing, and we weren't telling them at the time." michael hackwith, a marine veteran of the gulf war, started this inipi with a couple friends who wanted to follow their own cultural religious practice. praying, singing, playing drums -- and sweating in the tent -- around dozens of hot stones, in complete darkness. it's a purity ritual, designed to help sweat out negativity -- a common problem for struggling soldiers . "i've deployed five times.
12:20 pm
and all that negative baggage that you collect and the things that you see and stuff like that, this helps you cope. this helps you deal with all that." fort carson formally recognized the sweat lodge as a religious practice in 2005, the first-ever on a military base -- and chaplains now recommend the ritual to those with p- t-s-d. guided by natives belting out tribal chants, everyone else is encouraged to pray in their own faith. "you pray for your enemies and people that don't like you. and that's difficult, and as a veteran, you're praying for those people that actually shot at you. that helps you come to terms with a lot of the stuff." for some, discovering the sweat lodge came at the lowest point in their lives -- like john charles freyta, a desert storm vet who found out about the ceremony at an a-a meeting. "i got shot by the police four times, and i told the police i was suicidal and i wanted to die, and i threw a rock at them and they shot

escape. the stones heat over open flames for hours before being passed into the sweat lodge -- where leaders pour sage and water over them to produce the steam. a stifling environment at first, but those who practice say you soon break through your concerns about comfort and become grounded -- something first-timer oscar lilley embraced quickly. ""m here with ptsd, but i've also had three knee surgeries. i've had a pulmonary embolism, and that's all derived from training and combat, and your body, your mind and your soul takes a toll." originally designated only for men of the tribe, leaders now welcome anyone to the lodge, especially soldiers. and they're hoping the tradition will continue for generations to come. "there's not a whole lot of native americans left in this country, and the sad truth is someday we'll be gone, and this is all they have to remember us by."
