I am a soldier currently stationed at fort belvoir along with many other injured soldiers at the warrior transition battalion.
I myself am recovering from broken bones and ligaments in my foot and ankle and back problems from an IED blast.
I would love to put you in contact with the lady who runs the activities department hereHopefully then you can keep her informed of upcoming events if you dont know her already. Of course I'd LOVE to get out for some wheeling myself!!

Thank for your service and your interest in 4W2H! Give me a call!
Come join us for another Awesome weekend at the Cove! 4 Wheel to Heal will be there taking Wounded Warriors out on the trails and we will be launching our new T-Shirt! Shoot me an email if you have any questions!
Well Main Jambo has come and gone! What an event for 4 Wheel to Heal and the Warriors that joined us. 6 Warriors were planning on joining us this event and one had to end up canceling do to some unexpected surgery in the family. John Patterson, John Curtin, Jimmy Nickleson, John Albright, and Nate Rodriguez all joined us for an event they would never forget.
Friday we started the day out with picking up Val from Airman Magazine and hitting some trails. Our new Volunteers joined us and we threw them right into the mix. The Volunteers were Dave Pendergraph, Rob Parish, Rob and Billy Wilkes from Fragout Armor, and Will another military member who came out with Rob Parish. We started with a safety brief before hitting the trails.
John Patterson drove Nathans rig and we all hit the trails. It was mostly driving the fire trails and hitting Trickle towards the end. Nathans rig popped a power steering line and we headed back to camp for lunch. At this point I took the lead and handed the Warriors off to Dave for food and went and set up the merchandise tent at registration.
More pics to come but check this out! All of your support has led to this! 4 Wheel to Heal has been published in Air Force News. Great story about our trip to Big Dogs Main Jambo! Hopefully this will generate some solid donations for us going forward! What a great day and we could not have accomplished any of it without your support for our cause! Wounded Warriors deserve everything we can give them and there is such an impact when we are able to raise their moral! Thank you! Please SHARE
Friday night came and it was time for the Mud Pits. Another great night of Eugene on the mic and raising donations for our organization. We ended up raising about $700 dollars this time which was huge. Also a couple of the Warriors got to take a few rides into the mudbogs.
We didn't do any night wheeling that night and ended finishing up the night around the fire. The next morning we met up with the Air Force Magazine photographer Val and also Shift point Magazine sent out a photographer to document our trip. He is the one to thank for all these awesome photos. So we took a few mintues after the driver meeting to take a couple of group photos which really came out well before hitting the trails. Also I tossed another pic in of John Curtin that was a great pic and John Patterson's Purple Heart tattoo
There was one area we attempted to take a stock cherokee through and ended up sliding into a tough perdicament do to the mud. We had to strap it up and get creative to get it out. It was a good story and the pics don't do it justice.
The bonfire that night was great! There was a huge amount of support for 4 Wheel to Heal and we sold a ton of the new Rock Warrior T-Shirts. The Warriors even had a few opportunities to hit the Rock Pile in some buggy's.
The last day day of Main Jambo Nathan took the guys out shooitng and we closed up the camp ground and headed home. What a great event and we really touched a ton of people bringing these Warriors out and introducing them to our sport. This one will go down in the books!
Great news! We have just received our paperwork back from the IRS! We are officially a Non-Profit Tax Exempt Organization! We can now start seeking sponsorship! What awesome news! Thank you for everything you have done to support us!
