Wheeler takes to the road when he realizes the true cost of his Navy career. He was using his not inconsequential skills in the service of a war that he could no longer support. He has to leave but has no destination other than far away from the killing, as he sets out in his aging VW bus to find himself and discover how the world really works. More
Wheeler discovered early on he could sense what was about to happen, know from his internal radar, that he needed to be somewhere or do something. He joined the Navy and put his skills to work to keep his close group of safe and away from dangerous situations as if that were really possible in the war zones they visited.
He leaves the Navy when the fighting and destruction forces him to realize he really wants to create a life for himself that is his own, without the grisly side effects. He leaves the ordered life of a soldier and sets out in his old VW bus to actually do some good, maybe making amends in some small way by contributing to the greater good. What he actually finds requires his unique skills and courage to step in and do the needful, and he discovers along the way is that he is more capable than he previously knew.
