Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers.
Team USA2Ride rode to Chester’s Fort Lauderdale Harley-Davidson to check the event OPERATIONAL PERSONAL FREEDOM benefiting the WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT on June 27, where we had the opportunity to interview Judy and E.B.Chester the couple who own the dealership.

The WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT is a project that involves donations to the American soldiers who were on battlefields, whether beyond the borders of the United States (Baghdad, Iraq, etc.) as well as in terrorist attacks. The program helps in the rehabilitation of soldiers and their families, since the suffering and trauma caused involve all the people who are surrounding the soldier.
According to WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT, 43% of soldiers reported brain injuries, 400,000 military service members reported consequences of the battles, the invisible wounds of war, ranging from post-combat stress, severe depression to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD ) .
