Veteran Corps Honors Wounded Warriors in the 2015 Face of America Bike Ride
On April 24-26, 2015, Veteran Corps proudly sponsored our fourth Face of America ride. Participants in this annual non-competitive bicycle ride travelled 110 miles from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia to the historic Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Our team of 19 riders along with nearly 600 riders, including more than 130 injured veterans, experienced a unique opportunity to honor America’s servicemen and women who have been wounded or injured, as they set and achieved new goals. Team Veteran Corps was comprised of an amazing crew. Our veteran riders who have met this challenge in previous years included: Tom Mitchell, our team captain, John Wheeler, Andrew Palisin, Mike Kiess, Edgar Blanco, and MSG Jeremy Mann. And new to the challenge this year were: Wes Brin, David Cozad, Steve & Sharon Dancer, Chris Dewhirst, Tad & Crystal Johnston, Donnie Moten, and Bobby Williams. With a special thank you to the crew behind the scenes including: Seth Chouinard, Laura Frances, Dan & Amy Grant, Josh Maurer, Susan Nelson, Carolanne O’Neil, and Travis Sapp. Veteran Corps also partnered with FaithPoint including their team captain, Tim Goodwin of Camber and 47 or their riders and support team. We included a special mention to Camber and our team at FR as we were honored to add their logos along with the five branches of the military to our cycling jerseys. When you experience the Face of America ride, you can’t help but feel a little bit changed fundamentally. This event is truly an inspiration.
