Soldier Ride/Wounded Warrior Project

Four Star Club member Jessica Landry just sent a note to bring two very worthy projects to our attention.

The Wounded Warrior Project is dedicated to serving the needs of a new generation of veterans and ensuring that the United States government and the American public live by our motto, "Putting Veterans first in America." The Project seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere around the world.

To carry out this vital mission, the project will:

* Provide free assistance to veterans attempting to obtain benefts from the Department of Veterans Affairs and other agencies.
* Represent veterans on state and federal legislative issues.
* Work with business and government leaders to ensure veterans are given equal opportunity in hiring.
* Provide outreach to modern veterans through programs and services that address their unique needs.

The Soldier Ride is a fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project. Cyclist Chris Carney volunteered to cycle across the United States to help raise money for – and consciousness about – these brave soldiers.

We urge all of our members to support these organizations.
