For those that aren't sure, or haven't heard of Team RWB, here's a little bit about them...
Team Red, White & Blue is a veteran support organization whose mission is to enrich the lives of wounded veterans and their families. Ultimately, we aim to transform the way wounded veterans are reintegrated into society when they return from combat. Specifically, we work to help them transition from the military life they've always known into the civilian life they are now a part of.
We don't have to look far to find a service member milling around with us. Some have never seen combat outside of the states. Some have seen multiple tours in multiple countries. They've all stood up to protect us when we never asked for it.
IT'S OUR TURN to help them out a little and let them know they have people in their corner returning the favor.
For 2011 I'm hoping to race in multiple events as a member of Team Red, White & Blue. It'll be an honor!
