PROJECT HERO SAVES LIVES

Every 65 minutes, a military veteran commits suicide, according to a new investigation by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.  This means that the suicide rate among vets and active duty military has jumped to 22 per day.  Ride 2 Recovery is helping veterans beat these odds.

Over 1 million veterans have been injured in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, 
according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as reported by International Business Times.

As many as 1 in 5 veterans of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) according to experts at the National Center for PTSD.
