Combat wounded soldier rides again

Bikers on the Run For The Wall cross country expedition cruised through Gallup May 14. Also, that same day, Comfort Suites hosted a meet and greet with U.S. Army Ssgt. Brian Mast.

Mast was hit by an IED while serving in Afghanistan in 2010. As a result, he lost a finger, part of his forearm and both legs. While he was able to resume most activities, riding a motorcycle seemed out of reach.

But, not for long.

Thanks to the collaborative efforts of Run For The Wall and Eagles Up teams, a bike was donated and modifications were made so Mast could join in this ride to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial wall in Washington, D.C.

On line donations can be made to: www.eaglesup.us/
