Over 120 wounded warriors from Spain, Latvia, Georgia, Estonia, Germany, Norway, and the United States participated in the third annual Soldier Ride Germany Aug. 8-10 in Bostalsee. The Soldier Ride, sponsored by the Wounded Warrior Project, was a four-day cycling opportunity for wounded Soldiers to use cycling and the bonds of service to overcome physical, mental or emotional wounds. The event concluded with a community ride, where members of the community at large were invited to participate and support the Soldiers in their journey. After the bike ride, there was a picnic reception, also sponsored by the WWP. This year over 700 supporters from multiple U.S. Army Europe military installations throughout Europe participated.
