“In 2006, the late Major General Gerald Sajer and his wife, Helen, decided to be on the frontlines of aiding veteran families and founded the non-profit Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors. “When our son Frank (then Lt. Col. Frank Sajer) came home alive from Iraq, General Sajer and I looked at each other at Thanksgiving and said, ‘We need to do something for our wounded soldiers and their families,’” Helen recalled… Shortly before he passed away last year, General Sajer asked Helen if she was going to “march on” with PA Wounded Warriors. She answered, “I’m sure of it.” The Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors instead focuses on the long recovery process of the veterans. ” -Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors
Just days prior to the event, Tony Marinucci of the Pocono Mountain Street Rods, passed away. He was passionate about this event and would have been so proud of the amazing effort the Wings and Wheels was able to do on behalf of Pennsylvania Wounded Warriors, Inc.
