Sam’s Ride For Peace

Sam Winstead is a Marine combat veteran of the Peleliu and Okinawa campaigns of World War II, two island names that will send a shudder through you if you know your WWII history. Sam was a scout and would have undoubtedly had a hard time of it.

During our second Iraq War Sam received a letter from his grandson, also a Marine. His grandson’s words from Iraq reminded Sam of the waste and worthlessness of war.

Sam is now organizing his fourth Ride for Peace. For the past three years Sam, who will turn 90 this coming year, has pedaled 350 miles from Raleigh, NC to Washington, DC to petition our elected leaders to learn from history and avoid war.

This year a documentary will be made by FILMS for World Peace chronicling Sam’s ride . Please take a watch of their trailer and please consider donating or volunteering your support.
