Wounded veterans find an outlet, and healing, in cycling

Kathleen White of Raynham suffered a traumatic brain injury during an Army National Guard tour of Iraq in 2004. In her first year back home, she would not leave the house. In her second year, she ventured outside to the mailbox. But in her third year, she began to live again.

On Saturday morning, White will continue that journey as she cycles around historic Concord with 50 disabled veterans and about 400 other riders in a display of how camaraderie, competition, and compassion can salve both body and soul.
