Third Army promotes motorcycle safety with rally
News from Sumter Item:

There’s something liberating about riding a motorcycle for Third Army Capt. Karlyn Maschhoff, an Army chaplain, especially after returning from deployment. When she hits the road on her 2007 Harley-Davidson Sportster, she said the ride is equally as exciting as it is calming.
