MISSION — When retired U.S. Army Sgt. David Guzman sits in his backyard at the end of the day and listens to the mockingbirds sing and watches the trees sway in the wind, he asks himself what good, if any, he’s done for the day.
“I’m just here to do what I can,” Guzman said. “My second chance in life is to pass on what I can to other veterans.”
Tomorrow, Guzman and fellow veteran and Mission police officer Rolando Perez, both Mission residents, will honor wounded soldiers and remind the community that military members need all the support they can get.
The Wounded Warrior Project’s Soldier Ride will be in San Antonio for a 15-mile bike ride. The event allows wounded soldiers to “battle the physical and psychological damages of war,” through cycling officials said.
