"My Step-Father, MSGT. Michael Wood brought me from an orphanage in Wunderberg, Germany to AMERICA in 1973, and DEEPLY influenced my life. He died too soon 3 days after his 38th Birthday, after 19 + years of Military service. I spent those last 3 days with him. He saved my LIFE! ONE VETERAN, and now ONE ADDICT, who has helped over ONE THOUSAND Female Addicts see themselves as a possibility for success and "from victim to VICTORY!" Sonshine honors her Step-Father by being a member of The Wall Gang. With 5 cognitive groups a week and building the recovery home, life is getting too busy. BE a part of this Journey! She has a deep desire to travel with Steve and the Wall Gang to HONOR her Step-Father, lay a wreath, leave a picture of him at the Wall, for his fallen troops. WHY: The National Veterans Awareness Ride is a dedicated yearly ride to Honor all Veterans who served our country. Steve Moore of The Wall Gang and NVAR Chairman and 5 others will leave May 8 @ 8:00 am from the DAV 2301 Ohio St. Michigan City, stopping on May 21 at 3:30 pm at the Harley Shop in Michigan City and then returning May 28.
