PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – This week’s Military Minute is about Rick Raley. He’s an Army veteran from Indiana on a 1500 mile trip from New York City to Pinellas Park, Florida… on a hand cycle.
He made a stop in Hampton Roads last week. Raley lost his ability to walk after a car accident in 2009. Nearly seven months earlier, Raley returned from Iraq where an IED blast left him with a traumatic brain injury. Now he rides to prevent fellow service members from committing suicide.
