Reader Mike Corry
says, "Hey, Jimmy. Keep up the good work! Figured I would send this feel-good story to you to perhaps post and make your readers aware of. Two friends of mine (Kevin Mincio
and Matt Sauri
) are cycling across America in honor of a fallen soldier named Jesse Williams,
who was killed in Iraq in 2007. They are six days into the adventure that started in Santa Rosa, California at Jesse's grave on what would have been his 30th birthday. The journey will end when they arrive at Ground Zero on the 10th anniversary of the attacks on America. Ninety-five days, 4,200 miles, and one goal: to raise money and awareness for families of the fallen in honor of Jesse Williams. My freinds are currently in Nevada and blogging throughout the trip. More info can be found here
. Lastly, Kevin Mincio's story is quite amazing. He left a Wall Street job after witnessing the Towers fall and joined the Army. ABC News did a feature on him last fall, which can be found here
. I'd appreciate if you can post. I want to spread the word and raise some money for a great cause!"
