Our Soldier's Active Service May End, But Not Our Support

I've been asked to be a part of what I consider to be a very interesting event on March 27. The Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride (no, I won't be on a cycle!).

The ride starts at the Veteran's Administration Hospital in Dallas, Texas at 8:30 a.m. goes on through Grand Prairie and Arlington, Texas and ends at the Police Academy in Fort Worth at 4:00 p.m.

The Soldier Ride is to encourage disabled vets and those who suffer from the wounds of war as they seek to live productive lives after their service to our country.

Whether as they start in Dallas, or along the route, or when they conclude in Fort Worth, I encourage all who have an opportunity to salute these brave participants and donate if you can to their cause.

War is a very complex thing. It's nearly impossible to count the costs. And there are some who pay for the rest of their lives, in ways most of us can never imagine.

Hope to see you on March 27!
