Expeditionary Veterans Association Charity Bike

Regular price $2,200.00 Sale


Expeditionary Veterans Association was started by US Army Disabled Combat Veteran Jacob Cruz-Ratliff. His goal for EVA was made to join Veterans and Active-Duty Military Personnel that suffer with PTSD to come together and provide them with recreational therapy such as Mountain-Biking and Road-Biking. These expeditionary adventures will help with the treatment and mental development of those we assist in combating the negative effects of PTSD. EVA’s trade marked logo is a Rifles Reticle/Optics with the wording, “Not All Wounds Are Visible” around the Reticle/Optics. The symbolism behind this is that PTSD is not something an untrained person can recognize or understand. EVA on the other hand, is trained, can recognize and understand PTSD, therefore we are the rifles reticle/optics that can clearly see and focus on treatment of our clientele that suffer with PTSD.
