The Force Recon Association worked closely with Specialized Bikes and recently purchased $6,000 worth of bicycles for the Wounded Warrior Battalion. The bikes are high quality road bikes that retail for over $15,000. The bikes were drastically discounted so the FRA could purchase a large quantity of bikes for our Marines and Sailors. On Tuesday the FRA Executive Director Jim “Mac” Mckee attended a donation ceremony and presented the bikes to the Wounded Warrior Battalion at Camp Pendleton . Several active duty Marines and FRA members from Force Recon , I MEF attended the ceremony.

LOL The USMC gets bikes donated, good for wound Marines to get moving and stay active. Mean while the US Army gets Segways so that we can contiue to be fat and lazy... :doh:

Good on the FRA for doing something smart for their Marines, this will be a huge benfit to the wounded Marines in keeping them active and in shape! :)

I thought it was a great idea as well, there were also hand pedaled bikes for those Marines who needed them.
