The 2012 Warrior Games Opens!
Justice Was Served - A Thank You To All Who Serve

The Warrior 100K

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. As part of the George W. Bush Presidential Center’s Military Service Initiative, the W100 highlights the bravery and sacrifice of the warriors wounded in the global war on terror, as well as those organizations that have made continuing commitments to supporting America’s heroes.

The three-day event provides an opportunity to highlight the good work of military support organizations and is sponsored by several companies and individuals that have generously contributed their time and resources to support America’s servicemen and women. The 2011 W100 was the first event for the Military Service Initiative of the Bush Center.


You've met a few of the riders in the Warrior 100k here before...

Recognize this guy?

Thought so.  That's Major Dan Gade who we've written about more than a few times.  The guy on the left used to be the Commander in Chief...Gade also has a project called In the Event of my Death, Open this Letter...

And this is Melissa Stockwell (I believe), again with that other guy, and she is also in the previous post today opening the 2012 Warrior Games.
