AUSTIN – Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott met this morning with members of the Warriors on Wheels Ride Texas Team. The warriors – made up of active duty, retired personnel and civilians – gathered at the State Capitol before beginning the fourth day of their six-day ride across Texas. The riders started in Wichita Falls and will ride a total of 500 miles, ending in Corpus Christi. The purpose of the ride is to raise money for active duty military and veterans support organizations. “As Americans, we owe everything to the men and women in the armed services who work tirelessly every day to keep us safe, and to the veterans who have done the same,” Attorney General Abbott said. “It was an honor to have the opportunity to meet these individuals who are riding for such a worthy cause."
