Greater Joint Base Lewis-McChord community comes together to say “I’m here” for Wounded Warriors
and their families.

Fairfax, VA (July 1, 2013) – On a clear and beautiful day in Northwest Washington, Vietnam Veteran
Darrel Mooney and his wife, Army Veteran Roseann Mooney, set out on a 4,000 mile journey to raise
awareness and support for Wounded Warriors and their families known as the Cause Warrior Ride. To
celebrate the kickoff of this unique journey from the joint Army-Air Force base located forty-five miles
south of Seattle, members of the community came together to show their support and appreciation for
those who have made great sacrifices in defense of America’s freedoms.

Presenting sponsor of the inaugural Warrior Ride, The Informatics Application Group (Tiag) was on hand
to show their continued support of Cause and those who benefit from Cause programs. Tiag’s Director of
Communications Paul Eley explained Tiag’s commitment to Cause and the Warrior Ride:
“Tiag is honored to sponsor CAUSE Warrior Ride because this ride exemplifies the Army Soldier's creed of
never leaving our soldiers behind. This summer's journey is raising awareness and support for the
challenges faced by wounded warriors, active duty soldiers, veterans and their families in our
communities. For many of our wounded warriors struggling with TBI and PTSD, coming home from the
battlefield doesn’t mean their fight is over. This ride is a perfect opportunity for everyone who is along
the route to get out and show their support, wave a flag - recognize our military families and show them
the support that they deserve.”

The Cause Warrior Ride will cover 4,000 miles of America’s heartland and end with a final celebration on
the National Mall, October 6, 2013.
