Today’s Miami Herald contains an article about the Soldier Ride, a bicycle ride from Miami to the Florida Keys for wounded veterans. The article is worth reading if only because it tells the story of two young Soldiers, SSG Dennison and SPC Todd, who both lost their legs in Afghanistan only a few months ago during the same battle. Their positive attitude and ability to overcome adversity is truly inspirational.
The Soldier Ride is now part of a larger organization called the Wounded Warrior Project. The Wounded Warrior Project provides support, awareness, and programs to meet the needs of wounded servicemembers and their families. More information can be found at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/.
