Along the way I crossed paths with a group making an across-country tour in memory of a fallen soldier, Cpl Christopher G. Scherer, USMC. Christoper lost his live while serving in Iraq July 21, 2007. The group, named "Team Chris", is also riding to help wounded soldier Sgt. Leo Chargalauf, USMC. More information on the groups journey, the goals for the ride, and Cpl Chris and Sgt Leo can be found at:

Today was a great day. Meeting "Team Chris" and reading about their mission inspires me to do something for another person. I too have had family members who have served in Iraq (one of which was injured during duty). I appreciate the sacrifices they and all other members of the U.S. military have made to ensure safety for us here in the U.S.
