Major Kent Solheim – Hero

At Big Hollywood, what I hope will be an ongoing feature spotlighting wounded veterans. In this instance, it’s Major Kent Solheim. Why the media continues to completely ignore these stories is beyond me. Well, not really, but it’s still disgusting.

  1. General Westmoreland once said “When the soldiers came home from Vietnam, there were no parades, no celebrations. So they built the Vietnam Memorial for themselves”

    Not much has really changed.

  2. Thanks for coming by, Hugh – and you’re right – I guess (as with pretty much everything else) we’re going to have to do it ourselves if we want something done right.

  3. Dear Friends

    I am reaching out and asking that you help me make a difference in helping our injured veterans. Sponsor me as I participate in the Road 2 Recovery California Challenge from San Francisco to Los Angeles on Oct 4th – 10th 2009.

    The money raised for the Road 2 Recovery ride will support Spinning® and outdoor cycling programs at Military and VA locations around the United States. Cycling is an important part of the recovery and rehabilitation program for two reasons:

    1. Cycling is an activity that almost all patients with mental and physical disabilities can participate.
    2. Participation in the Road 2 Recovery Program helps speed up the recovery and rehabilitation process.

    Cycling provides and offers a low impact physical endurance and emotional release exercise from the demons & stress of returning to life after war and injury. Cycling is also a means to reintroduce and help transition those injured back into society. It provides and expands a support network outside of the traditional family and VA system. The bicycle, and cycling friends will always be present and available when parents die, spouses divorce, and the Veterans Administration is so over burdened that it becomes part of the problem.

    Visit the website http://www.road2recovery.us.com and learn more about this important event and organization. Every penny of your donation will go directly to these valuable programs, and your donation is completely tax deductible. If you would like to donate online just follow the link and add my name (Hugh Mc Larnon) as the rider you would like to sponsor. http://www.r2rriders.com/sponsor/

    You can also mail a check payable to Fitness Challenge Foundation to:
    Fitness Challenge Foundation
    23679 Calabasas Rd #420 Calabasas, CA 91302

    Please indicate my name Hugh Mc Larnon in the “comments” area of your check.
