Gary Richiusa--first son of Salvatore “Sam” Richiusa and Flora "Mae" Villani Richiusa--is a Harley Davidson motorcycle rider, a disabled and decorated (Bronze Star) Viet Nam veteran, and a member of The Patriot Guard (a loosely affiliated group of veterans who volunteer as honor guard for memorials of veterans around the country. He is also  the first official Ambassador for the 501 (c) 3 non-profit, Heroes’ Hearts Inc. and wants to bring the Only Sweetheart Souvenir  from the battle of Pearl Harbor on an Aloha Ride to every Veterans Administration facility in every state in the U.S. to spread awareness of our motto, Do Something Good on behalf of all disabled veterans everywhere. The ride (we are seeking funding now) will highlight overcoming the far reaching obstacles experienced by combat veterans as a result of both PTSD and other disabilities, and  our mission of opposing discrimination by “Helping Heroes, One Good Deed at a Time.”  

If you would like to join Gary for any part of this ride, please contact him through this site. "Get in Touch" link at the bottom of this page.
