Heroes of All Ages

February 1st, 2012

2-1-12The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes began in the busiest regions of the nation for those wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan. With Marines nearby at Camp Pendleton, the US Naval Station in San Diego and the Marines Air Base at Miramar, the San Diego area has a big military presence. Many of those severely injured come to be rehabbed at the Naval Hospital at Balboa and the VA Medical Center at La Jolla. It seems as if everyone on this area has a tie militarily or personally to someone connected with the military.
Chacet is a senior in high school. She stopped and asked me how she could help to support The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes. She has a big interest in Wounded Warriors as her mom is making a career in the Navy. Chacet is planning on entering the Army when she graduates. She is one of my high school heroes.
With the number of connections I have made in this area over the past few days, I am hoping The Kindness Bicycle Ride for Heroes will be able to visit a base and for sure a hospital.
