Ricochet is the best place on the internet to discuss the issues of the day, either through commenting on posts or writing your own for our active and dynamic community in a fully moderated environment. In addition, the Ricochet Audio Network offers over 50 original podcasts with new episodes released every day.
Ryan Casperson joins the show. Ryan spent 4 years active duty in the US Army and is currently in his 7th year in the California National Guard. He is the Commander of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Associate Chapter (CVMA) 33-2, based in Stockton, CA.
While on active duty, Ryan was a wrecker, or what he describes as a “tow-service for the Army.” While on deployment in Afghanistan, Ryan had some memorable experiences, including hanging in a truck off the side of a cliff, being mortared a few times and eating lamb chops at a Polish Forward Operating Base. Back home, Ryan continues to serve in the CA National Guard and through the CVMA. Ryan’s chapter is involved in many local charitable projects, including a homeless veteran’s outreach program, memorial rides, and Christmas/New Year’s giveaway for veteran families in need.
