Wounded Veteran Donates Motorcycle for Charity

(Tampa, FL)- In the fall of 2008, Special Forces Serviceman Romulo "Romy" Camargo was caught in an ambush in Afghanistan and took a bullet in the neck. He was paralyzed and had to face an extended, painful recovery process that is still ongoing.

During his years of recuperation and therapy, this American hero -- who loved sports, the outdoors and especially his motorcycle - kept a photo of his precious two-wheeler pasted over his bed.

Romy was determined to ride again, and last year the Post 911 Foundation, Lefty Brothers Motorcycles and SF Motorcycle Club, Inc., put him back on the road in a custom built sidecar bike.

Meanwhile, Romy has made great strides. He fought off infections, learned to breathe on his own and moved out of the hospital into his own home.

As he moves on with his life, Romy is ready to let go of the beloved beauty he rode before. He's offering up his 2004 Harley Softtail Springer FXSTS. The tickets for the drawing are $100 each and only 200 tickets have been printed.

To give back to the community, he's donating half the proceeds to local charities, including Operation Welcome Home, Patriot Families and the Special Forces Association scholarship fund.

The event will also be a celebration, of course, with family and friends gathered to celebrate the courage and determination of one extraordinary man.

On hand will be Attorney and Motorcycle Advocate Fran Haasch. Haasch has been seen on the cover of some prestigious motorcycle magazines such as "Born to Ride" and "Full Throttle" over the years as well as articles she wrote for the magazine regarding insurance for motorcyclists.
