Wounded Warrior Drive


Recommended Posts

I just wanted to share some pictures from our Wounded Warrior drive here in Germany. We picked the wounded soldiers up on base and took them for a ride for a couple of hours . We then headed over to the airstrip where they got a chance to take some pictures with the cars and the Blackhawk helicopters. They had some barbeque and a chance to relax for a day.

 

Enjoy.

One of the soldiers riding with me. He truly loved it, especially when I flew by the SC Saleen while having 4 passengers (200lbs each).

End of a great day. True American Heroes.

What a cool thing for you guys to do! The look on the young soldier's face says it all.

Great pictures and good for you guys and your stangs! :happy feet:

That's awesome! I'll bet those soldiers loved your car.

 

Look at that smile on that young soldiers face........Priceless!!!

 

Thanks for sharing.

 

Thanks for the kind words.

 

This really made my day. I like the fact that we made a difference and allowed them to enjoy the day.

 

We will do this more often. Our units really support this and I love the fact that we are able to put a smile on the face of a wounded warrior that just got back from Afghanistan and/or Iraq.

ShelbySnake,

That was a very admirable thing you guys did. I bet having your GT500 in Germany is a lot of fun, eh? I spent 10 years (3 separate tours) over there. 1982-1984 in Wertheim, 1986-1990 in Nuernberg, and 1992-1995 in Mannheim, but I never had a good muscle car while there. When you shipped your car, any issues? Who did you ship with? Thanks.

Drive on...

ShelbySnake,

 

That is really cool that you guys did this at Landstuhl....my Mom was an Army nurse there from 86-89, and my dad was stationed at Ramstein Air Force Base during the same period....we lived in a small town near Kiserslertern (forgive my spelling) during that period...it was a great part of Germany to live in...brings back good memories as an army brat...... :dance:

Great Pictures. I was stationed at Rhein Main Air base from 1993 - 1996. I was driving a chrysler conquest at the time. I blew the engine on the autobahn going about 120 mph. Man I was lucky that I didn't crash. You have great leadership in your unit to do something like this. Keep up the good work.

Mark,

 

We go to Mannheim all the time. It's only about 40 minutes away. I did ship the Shelby with Ship Overseas. I had some minor issues but overall it was okay.

We live about 15 minutes from Ramstein. Kaiserslautern is very close. It's a great place. Tons of things to do and see.
