From Goldman Sachs To Iraq, And Back To Ground Zero
Forbes covers The Ride At 8:46 a.m. on September 11, 2001, Kevin Mincio was a Goldman Sachs vice president in a middle of a meeting at the firm’s One Liberty Plaza offices in Lower Manhattan. A little more than two years later he was in Iraq with the Army, not far from where Saddam Hussein was captured by his fellow soldiers. And on Sunday Kevin will ride into lower Manhattan after a cross-country bike trek that is fulfilling a promise he made to a friend killed in action. Mincio is completing a 4,200-mile bike ride from California to the site of the Twin Towers on behalf of the Team Jesse Foundation, which helps families of fallen soldiers in memory of his friend, Army Staff Sergeant Jesse Williams and the thousands who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks and the war on terror.
