    Earlier this month more than 200 veterans cycling from San Francisco to San Monica as a part of the Annual Ride to Recovery bike
    race—which raises funds to support rehabilitation programs for our nation’s military veterans and soldiers—stopped at the Reagan Ranch Center in Santa Barbara.  Young America’s Foundation staff was on hand to greet the riders when they stopped at the Center in the heart of downtown for lunch prepared by the USO.


    According to the American Legion’s website:

     

     

    “Cycling is an important part of recovery and rehabilitation. The benefits of Ride 2 Recovery include weight loss, improved cardio fitness, recovery and rehabilitation, mental health and improved morale. Also, it gives participants a sense of normalcy, accomplishment, pride and camaraderie and provides relief from depression and other problems that often accompany recovery and rehabilitation.”

     

    Young America’s Foundation was honored to provide hospitality to the veterans as a small way of thanking them for their sacrifices to protect our Freedoms.

    • It's so funny you posted this beausce this year, the girls and I went around with a few other families as one big horde of kids going from house to house. M & B learned a lot from the Big Kids and they really had a lot of fun (and it was great for me having additional parents to look out for my kids). One kid, though, had a helicopter mom. She was either admonishing him to be careful or up in his face taking a picture. I think she took 100 pictures. I kind of felt bad for her beausce, sure she might have all these pictures to remember the trick or treating years, but she won't have the actual memories of the moments that you posted about here.

    • It is also more than a coincidence that a large nmbeur of people turned up to hurl abuse and engage in childish or violent antics such as smashing effigies or setting off alarms. The trail of logic in this article or your comment does not work.And do we know that Griffin had been informed Excuse me sir you should not eat with these people they are Stormfront members beforehand? Is he required to check about everybody he eats with? Do you?This article is proof that some people are simply looking to justify the actions of the left on this evening because, in fact, they know their actions were unjustifiable.
