Road two Recovery hosts regional clinic in Virginia Beach

Hundreds of wounded warriors, along with celebrities, athletes and local riders, will participate in the inaugural Regional Training Clinic presented by the USO October 10-12 at the Little Creek Naval Base, Virginia Beach, Virginia. The three-day clinic will feature daily rides, safety and ride briefings and bicycle seminars. This event is part of the 2008 Hampton Roads Fleet Week activities, and is the first of six Road to Recovery events scheduled on military bases throughout the country.

"The USO is excited to be a part of this year's Road 2 Recovery Fleet Week ride," said Sloan Gibson, USO president. "This partnership increases our ability to lift troop spirits, deliver the comforts of home and improve the lives of our wounded troops."

"This trip is not so much about having fun as it is about transforming your new body with something you can work with the rest of your life," said Captain Ferris Butler. The Regional Training Clinic will mark Butler's return to action after his recent leg surgery.

As a part of the USO's Operation Enduring Care program, the Road 2 Recovery partnership is another way the USO is helping America's troops. This program helps meet the recovery needs of injured service members and their families, and supports medical personnel who care for the wounded, funeral escorts, mortuary personnel and honor guards serving fallen troops.
