ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden welcome to the White House participants of the Wounded Warrior Project's Soldier Ride, Thursday (April 14). The Soldier Ride is a four-day cycling event for wounded service members and veterans. "This year we've got 40 active duty riders and 25 veterans. Many of you are recovering from major injuries, you've learned how to adapt to a new life. Some of you are still working through wounds that are harder to see like Post Traumatic Stress," Obama said. Organizers say the ride aims to help raise awareness of wounded vets, build relationships among injured service members and provides services to meet their needs. President Obama called up child volunteers to assist him with blowing the horn to signal the start of the ride, after which he gave cyclists 'high fives' as they rode by.
