|Description||America’s heroes need your help.
Today’s technology mercifully moves an injured soldier from battlefield to fully-equipped hospital in less than an hour.
What’s this mean? It means the number of amputees we bring home from war has skyrocketed over previous conflicts. It means 1 in 4 injured warriors now come home with a traumatic injury of some kind.
And the hospitals they come home to, while better equipped to handle them, are often ill-equipped to provide for their families.
What can we do? Here’s what we can do. There’s this thing called The Honor Run, Saturday, September 5th. A coast-to-coast ride that ends in Southern California.
The donations we raise will help a number of organizations take care of the men and women who took care of us. As well as their families.
Dave Barr, a double-amputee, will take off from the Vietnam Memorial in Washington D.C. on August 28th. As he and his buddies pick up steam and riders crossing the country, they’ll roll through a bunch of states. Ending up at Oakley headquarters in Orange County, California for a monumental celebration. See more here.
Word is, this thing could be up to 10,000 strong as it thunders on home.
Law enforcement’s onboard. So’s the 1st Marine Division Association. So’s the Vietnam Veterans of America. So’s CSI New York’s Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band, scheduled to get it on at the giant celebration at Oakley on the 5th.
All we need are you and your brothers to ride with this very simple message.
"America, the time has come to pay back our heroes."
With pennies. Dollars. Jobs. Education. Care. Whatever we’ve got.
There are no politics in these efforts. No Republicans. No Democrats.
We need your help out there on the road. To ride. To support the ride. To spread the word on the ride. We need all of America, but the message starts with you.
These are our heroes. They fought for all of us. Now’s our chance to fight for them.
Ride for them. Ride for you. Ride for honor.
