Justin Morin knows how Iraq changed the lives of those who served and fought there.

“Our wives and our kids see what we go through day by day,” Morin said. “They see the frustration, the stress and the anger sometimes, things they don’t need to see.”

He wants to do something to help those who have returned and are coping with lives shaped by memories of trauma.

Morin, 29, who enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Kirkuk, Iraq, from 2007 to 2008, is trying to raise $250,000 to help five veterans — himself and four others — build Harley Davidson motorcycles and ride them across the country.

Operation Hard Ride, as the fundraising effort is called, plans to use the donations to pay for the motorcycles and two recreational vehicles that will allow the veterans’ families to accompany the motorcycles on the journey.
