    ON THE MEND: Steven Bohn, a soldier injured in Afghanistan and part of the Wounded Warrior Project, shows his Purple Heart at his Peabody home.

    Former Army Spec. Steven Bohn will join 50 of his fellow veterans this week on a three-day ride with the Wounded Warrior Project, a day he’s looked forward to for a whole year.
    “That camaraderie is so powerful,” Bohn said.
    For the past decade, the Wounded Warrior Project has organized Soldier Rides across the nation. This year they’ve done 19 rides. According to event manager Meghan Speicher-Harris, the rides bring together veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with shared experiences and empower them through events, workshops and programs, while helping them adapt to civilian life with injuries.
    “We’re giving them the tools to create their new normal,” Speicher-Harris said.
