*’Sweeps’ NOTE:
…This was something special folks. On April 26-28, 2012, twenty servicemen and women wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan joined President George W. Bush for a 100 kilometer mountain bike ride in Palo Duro Canyon State Park.
Talk about ‘likeability’…these guys and gals helped each other make it, did the whole BIKE THING with their disabilities and everything else…but President Bush at 66y/o was with them every part of the way. Now you can see it and get the photos/video/and commentary. Yep right here. Enjoy it…it is inspirational, and the VETS could use all the help they can get. Thanks/’S’

Kudos to them for doing this, British wounded vets have also taken part in extreme activities comparable to what they did.

This is not the place for comments about why they became wounded etc, nor about the able-bodied celebrity who travelled with them.

*'Sweeps' NOTE:
...Just passing this LINK below along, from Dr. Marc Siegal...who has some nice words about the 'BIKE TOUR' and what he observed. Hope this adds to whatever point of view the reader has on this.

Put up this Topic simply to draw attention to the NEED to do everything 'we' can to support the Troops. This is NON-Political, not a statement of support for anyone, but it is an expression of the terrible Armed Services policy of sending its 'soldier's/etc. back into battle zones repeatedly.

That's the sadness of a Volunteer Armed Forces. Think it's time to bring back the 'DRAFT', and have citizens required to learn how to Serve their Country and be trained in the skills necessary to 'take back their Country' if they have to.

We are in DANGER of losing our Country, its values, Constitutional Rights, and the Republic for which it all stands...and we will need MANY trained Armed personnel and citizens waiting for the call 'to arms' to do just that....Take back the Republic. Can't do that with an all volunteer Armed Forces/'S'
