Veterans use 'wind therapy' to ease stress, help comrades
from Stars and Stripes
Engines roared and pipes steamed as the four motorcycles veered around the corner at a near beach. It was 45 degrees and raining, the wind shaking what was left of the leaves off their branches. Even some of the riders would have agreed that no one in their right mind would be out riding in such weather — and yet they were, seeking exactly that state of mind on the backs of their rides as the rain poured down. They call it "wind therapy," a special kind of solace that, for military veterans struggling with everyday life or the scenes they saw overseas, comes with riding motorcycles and the inherent freedom and friendship that follows.
