Warrior Brotherhood MC Ride with the Till Valhalla Truck

Warrior Brotherhood MC Ride with the Till Valhalla Truck

I was with Abington VSO Adam Gunn at Black Hat Brew Works a couple of months ago when first saw the Till Valhalla Truck. The truck made an immediate impression on me. The truck had names on it and the license plate “PTSD 22”, meant that this was not a typical custom truck.

Meeting Bill Sheridan and listening to his story I learned the Till Valhalla Truck keeps Bill in his fight with PTSD.

Bill asked me to come to Manchester Harley Davidson (https://manchesterharley.com/) on Saturday, August 12th for the Warrior Brotherhood MC (https://www.wbmcnh.com/) Veterans Suicide Awareness Ride. This ride is in honor of U.S. Army SPC William R. Carter this year’s beneficiary is the Liberty House (https://libertyhousenh.org/) in Manchester.

Meeting William’s mother and watching her talk with Bill about how PTSD affects everyone was something I needed to see. I know there are all kinds of programs, studies, and data about PTSD. Maybe it is a truck and a Ford truck (because there are so many) that allow people to have a moment of introspection and healing. Each name represents a life lost to PTSD. Bill could put over 100 more on his truck right now. We all are working for the day when there are no more names. Thank you Bill for letting me be a part of this experience.

Thanks again to the Warrior Brotherhood MC, Manchester Harley Davidson, Bone Frog Warrior, and everyone else who supported this ride.

World War II Veterans at Christ Church, Swansea, MA Veterans Breakfast

World War II Veterans at Christ Church, Swansea, MA Veterans Breakfast

David, a.k.a. “Big Dog” from the Veterans Brotherhood VMC asked me to come down to Christ Church in Swansea, MA for the Church’s monthly Veterans’ Breakfast on Saturday, August 5th, 2023.

Christ Church in Swansea, MA puts on a monthly breakfast for Veterans. I was impressed with the number of Veterans in attendance but also how the church ran the breakfast. The food was good and smiles were everywhere. I think Christ Church is onto something. Instead of big gala events, maybe some pancakes, bacon, and orange juice are more effective at getting Veterans together than anything else.

The Veterans Brotherhood VMC headed up by David, “Big Dog” had gathered up World War II Veterans that he takes care of to meet each other at the Veterans’ Breakfast.

Former Boston Globe and award-winning photojournalist Bill Brett was there and talked with the World War II Veterans and got some amazing photos for his upcoming book. He was warm and engaging me with me, and I enjoyed talking with him.

I always have fun talking with these real-life heroes. Both Manny and Caster have been on Oscar Mike Radio and seeing both of them makes it all worth it.

Thanks David, for getting these World War II Veterans together. I appreciate the work that Christ Church, all the members, and volunteers do to put on breakfast for us Veterans!

Thank you Christ Church, Swansea, MA
