Hi guys! I've have spoken to several of you already about this and there seems to be a lot of interest. 4 Wheel to Heal is looking for clubs that they can match their veterans with. I am interested in volunteering our club for this but want to make sure we have enough support.

To be a volunteer- 4 Wheel to Heal would require appropriate safety gear in rigs which are transporting wounded vets sponsored by 4 Wheel to Heal. Requirements are:
Seat Belts or Harnesses
Fire extinguisher
Grab handles that may have to support Veterans with disabilities
Helmets for serious wheeling.

4 Wheel to heal asks volunteers to keep in mind that these guys/girls may have physical or mental handicaps and therefore we would need to always be courteous of their needs. Some Veterans have psychological disabilities so you may need to watch the tone of your conversation and first gauge what appropriate subjects you may discuss when around a Wounded Veteran. 4 Wheel to Heal will do itís best to pass along any special needs, restrictions or requirements prior to trail rides.

It would be great if you guys could post up if you would be willing to participate.

God bless

I am up for it. I will do my best to free up a weekend. I have a close friend that was in there place mentally. After a few years of therapy he is finally coming to grips with what he went through.

The only mod that will be needed on my part will be a fire extinguisher. Do they require one on each side?

No dates and times yet. The application is for consideration of the club as a volunteer. If they have a wounded veteran in our area then they will send that person's contact information along and the club will arrange a run. I just wanted to make sure that before we committ to do this we have enough people to sponsor such a run.

I will keep you posted!

Thanks! Very Happy

I'm in but will have to stick with lap and shoulder belts. I use the rear seat for passengers every so often, so putting in the bar behind the front seats to secure the top straps of a 5 point harness won't work for me. I already have 2 fire extinguishers in the jeep (still need to mount the second) - please check if type BC is ok (good for fluids and electic, but not regular combustible solids). I have a grab handle on the passenger side door bar already, would need to know if/what extra handles are needed.
