WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Martha Roby (R-Ala.) today attended a special White House event honoring wounded service members and veterans as the Wounded Warrior Project’s Solider Ride made its way through Washington, D.C.

The Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride is a four-day cycling opportunity meant to help those who have suffered war injuries overcome the physical and psychological burdens resulting from their service. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump hosted a special ceremony for the Soldier Ride at the White House Thursday. Roby was proud to attend the event and show support for those participating.

“For so many wounded warriors, the road to recovery can be long and difficult. Soldier Ride offers wounded service members and veterans a unique opportunity to help each other build confidence by participating in a challenging physical activity,” Roby said. "I appreciate the President and First Lady hosting this special event and for inviting me to attend so I could pay tribute to some of the men and women who have sacrificed for our country. I am proud to represent a state that truly honors the service and sacrifice of our military families and veterans, and I’m grateful for projects like the Soldier Ride that are making a difference."
