President Obama welcomed the Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride to the White House yesterday, April 17, in celebration of the seventh annual Soldier Ride, a cycling event to help Wounded Warriors restore their physical and emotional well-being. (The video for the ceremony is below; to read the transcript, click here.)  

With the mission to honor and empower wounded warriors, the Wounded Warrior Project provides programs and services to severely injured service members during the time between active duty and transition to civilian life.

Soldier Ride is a unique four-day cycling opportunity for wounded warriors to use cycling and the bonds of service to overcome physical, mental, or emotional wounds. The rides are exhilarating and a great way to help warriors gain confidence and realize you can do this, says the WWP.  To learn more about the Soldier Ride, click here.
