Guests: Kevin Carey
Wheelers for the Wounded of California is a group dedicated to the aid of our veterans. It is a part of a national service group Wheelers for the Wounded. Each state’s group operates independently. Wheelers for the Wounded (WFTW) is an organization with the primary mission of providing a weekend of off-roading, camping, and in some cases fishing, to our country’s wounded military members all over the United States. This will provide them with much deserved fun and excitement as they traverse the most extreme terrain our great country has to offer in a variety of the best off-road capable vehicles ever built.
Kevin Carey and the California Wheelers for the Wounded use the buddy system to pair volunteers and veterans for their events. The veterans are assigned their driver 9 months before the event, giving the two time to meet and get to know each other. Then the group goes out on a 3 day and 3 night camping and wheeling extravaganza in the Rubicon at absolutely no cost to the veterans. The meals are catered and the group always includes medical and mechanical assistance in case of emergency.
