Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis 2015 Entrance

Made it home safe and sound from an unbelievable 2 week adventure! The Veterans Charity Ride to Sturgis 2015 started off with over a dozen strangers and quicklybecame a family. We shared some of the most personal, emotional and trying times of our lives, we used motorcycles and the ride as therapy to come together, heal and pull ourselves and each other out of the dark and into the light of life and living. This was by far the most rewarding thing I have ever done in my life. I am over-run with emotion, gratitude and the feeling of affection for my brothers and sisters who came together to make this happen and be part of what will be a long standing tradition. We touched the lives of thousands of veterans and the general public across the nation, we proved that people truly care about us and the issues that veterans face on a daily basis. There is so much more to come with clips, pictures and stories. I want to personally thank the Founding Veterans Riders Tommy Montgomery, Virgi Bondi,Georgey Doober Hernandez, David Maxwell Jr, George Nickel, Rich Chilly Neely,Sharon Allen Pirog, Jack Lewis, Frank K Allen, Sean Carroll, Joshua Ferguson, Glen Silva, and of course Robert Pandya who is now considered one of our Brothers in Arms. With love and respect Ndn Dave, Robert Manciero and the entire VCR crew.
