STURGIS, S.D. – It’s called motorcycle therapy.
Veterans from all over the country rode into Sturgis Saturday to wrap up their multi-state motorcycle ride.
The annual Veteran’s Charity Ride honors our nations wounded warriors during a nine day and more than 1,000 mile journey.
The bikers in the crowd may have looked like an ordinary group of bikers at the rally, but some of the vets were on modified bikes.
Organizers wanted to be sure to leave no veteran out, even those injured in combat.
Veteran, Josh Stein is one biker that participated in the charity ride.
He told KOTA-TV, “Life after the military still continues, you have to find that passion. For us it was motorcycles. It gets us out of the house; we get to explore the country on the back of a motor cycle.”
The ride started in Los Angeles and ended at the Sturgis rally. Stein said it’s great to see what he has fought and bled for.
