Operation Combat Bikesaver
« on: December 15, 2018, 09:49:34 AM »
"Operation Combat Bikesaver started as a non-profit in October 2015. The mission was to teach vets, especially from Iraq and Afghanistan, how to rebuild motorcycles and their lives after war."

Hmmmm --- very good idea!

Doing something with my hands, building things, have been therapy for me all my life - I'm not a vet.

Thanks for the post.  A family member of mine is working with Vets and PTSD.  She's spent many tours in the sandbox along with my cousin.

This sounds like a program that should expand to many other states.
