Bush reportedly rode with 15 wounded warriors on his ranch outside Crawford, Texas. Many of the participants expressed deep gratitude towards Bush, who reportedly spent hours talking and joking with them before riding alongside them.

Bush, who has always been a strong supporter of our brave men and women in uniform, has apparently always been inspired by Abraham Lincoln, who famously instructed the nation to “care for him who shall have borne the battle.” A month before his assassination, Lincoln signed a new law creating a National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers.
