Injured Vets on Bicycles Arrive in Arlington Today

Posted April 2, 2011 by Peter Gorman in Music

This is coming in late and I apologize but I do want to salute and congratulate the injured U.S. veterans who are arriving in Arlington this afternoon after a grueling 6-day, 350 mile bike ride from San Antonio.

The Ride 2 Recovery Texas Challenge, sponsored by United Health Care, is part rehab for the injured vets and part fund raiser for programs aimed at rehabilitating injured veterans.

Riders included amputees, partially paralyzed vets and even a blind vet riding a tandem bicycle.

These men and women showed courage on the battlefield and now again, demonstrating remarkable fortitude.

Hats off to you all.
